Filthy Lucre: Stories of Art and Money

May 16, 2015–November 29, 2016
Arthur M. Sackler Gallery

Filthy Lucre, an immersive interior by painter Darren Waterston, reinterprets James McNeill Whistler’s famed Peacock Room as a resplendent ruin, an aesthetic space that is literally overburdened by its own excesses—of materials, history, and creativity. Like the original Peacock Room, Filthy Lucre invites viewers to consider the complex relationships among art, money, and the passage of time.
