'Filthy Lucre': Artist Darren Waterston's Double Vision



Waterston's major exhibition, entitled "Uncertain Beauty," is on view at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA., through January 2015.  Filthy Lucre,  an installation within that larger survey, re-imagines James McNeil Whistler's 1876 masterpiece "Harmony in Blue and Gold: The Peacock Room."

"It is in a state of decadent demolition—a space collapsing in on itself, heavy with its own excess and tumultuous history. I imagined it as an unsettling cacophony with every interior surface and object within sumptuously painted." —Darren Waterston
"Filthy Lucre" will travel to the Freer Museum in Washington, DC, where it will be exhibited alongside Whistler's Peacock Room now in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
