"Two Cows"

November 1999 through September 2000

"Two Cows" by Vik Muniz was installed as the inaugural Project Wall upon the opening of the Artspace in November 1999.

Muniz, a Brazilian-born artist now living and working in New York, explores ideas of illusion and perception in a range of work and conceptual photographic studies.

"Two Cows" contained the double photographic image of a cow within a cow, transforming what initially appeared as a mundane farm picture into a curious and playful work of art that challenged initial perceptions. The image also made witty reference to Kansas City as an atypical cow town.
