When Dylan’s Candy Bar invited Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin to create artwork out of candy for a show during Art Basel Miami, the artists jumped at the chance to turn something traditional, like candy, into art. Inspired by their interest in architecture, Henry and Caitlin decided to reinvent gingerbread houses and use candy to build replicas of famous museums. Predictably, this posed many problems for the duo, but they used their talents to work through the challenges and produce beautiful recreations of the Guggenheim, the Karuizawa Museum, the Louvre, the Museum aan de Stroom, the National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, the Museo Soumaya, and the Tate Modern. Henry and Caitlin photographed the pieces in black and white and will show the images on December 6 at Dylan’s Candy Bar. Henry and Caitlin gave VICE a preview of the photos. Check out the photographs and then see the images in person at the show opening at Dylan's Candy Bar on December 6 from 6 to 8 PM.
