In this series, investigator of kitsch, appropriation, and popular culture, Olaf Breuning, depicts clothesless figures painted to evoke the signature styles of influential 20th-century artists like Pablo Picasso, Jeff Koons, Sol LeWitt, and Keith Haring —an iteration of his 2011 series “The Art Freaks". 

Sara VanDerBeek’s photographs and sculptural works incorporate diverse sources such as printed matter and personal photos; for this “Western Costume” series, Vanderbeek looked to her experiences in Los Angeles, drawing inspiration from everything from Hollywood to the region’s indigenous people.
