Summary:The eclectic essence of Francis Alÿs (b. 1959, Antwerp, Belgium; immigrated Mexico 1987. "The exhibition "Francis Alÿs. A Story of Negotiation", not only shows three series of work that are significant in the context of the artist's career -Tornado (2000-2010), Don't Cross the Bridge Before You Get to the River (2008) and REEL-UNREEL(2011-2014)- but also invites us to become more than simple spectators. Alÿs compels us to reflect with him upon frontiers, immigration, political conflicts, the way one gets to know the inhabitants of other continents; he brings us face to face with our conception of the world in which we live -and he does so through an artistic oeuvre that diverges from propaganda or activism." --Page 6.
