Brad Pitt revealed that his collections for him is about “self-reflection”. “It’s about where I have gotten it wrong in my relationships, where I have misstepped, where am I complicit. For me, it was born out of ownership of what I call a radical inventory of self, getting really brutally honest with me and taking account of those I may have hurt, moments I have just gotten wrong,” the actor explained.
Along with the exhibit of the series of plaster and bronze sculptures of Pitt, several paintings, and sculptures, by contemporary artists, Thomas Houseago and a ceramics collection by Nick Cave are also on display. According to a description of the new exhibit, titled “WE,” Pitt and Cave’s respective works were created “during the course of an ongoing dialogue with Houseago.”
