Over a career spanning four decades, visual artist John Waters has also been a film director, writer, actor, and journalist. His photography, sculptures, and installations are not spared from his satirical directorial glare, as he re-edits and re-contextualizes iconic film imagery in an often hilarious queering of popular culture. Themes and motifs of provocation — race, sex, gender, consumerism, and religion — are unapologetically central to his practice and presented with a brand of wit and cynicism that is uniquely John Waters. He was named the 2016 Tom of Finland Foundation Cultural Icon. John Waters lives and works in Baltimore, MD.
