Taking some time away from the set of Netflix’s $60-million project War Machine, Brad Pitt spent his Friday afternoon contemplating contemporary art while visiting some of the trendiest galleries in Berlin, Mitte.
He visited the recently-opened exhibition by Ed Ruscha, entitled Metro Mattresses, on view at Sprüth Magers. Perhaps Pitt was homesick for Los Angeles—the exhibition of the LA-based artist shows featured drawings of the mattresses found abandoned on the city’s streets. Additionally, Pitt stopped by the studio of Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, who is perhaps best known for his 2008 public arts project New York City Waterfalls.
Known to be something of a contemporary art buff, Pitt’s collection is reported to be worth approximately $18 million. In Hollywood, he is probably only second to fellow film-star Leonardo DiCaprio in his artistic interest. Pitt's collection includes Banksy, Neo Rauch, and Schoony.
