“Wasteland” shown by the Chestertown Environmental Committee
April 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Located just outside of Rio de Janeiro, Jardim Gramacho, Brazil, is the world’s largest garage landfill. Modern artist, Vic Muniz, works with the so-called catadores, the men and women who pick through the refuse, to create art out of recycled materials. Muniz selects six of the garbage pickers to pose as subjects in a serious of photographs mimicking famous paintings. In his desire to assist the catadores and to change their lives, Muniz finds himself changed as well.
