To celebrate the opening of Francis Alÿs: A Story of Negotiation join exhibition curator Cuauhtémoc Medina as he discusses the ground-breaking performative works of Francis Alÿs. A Story of Negotiation depicts almost a decade of work in which the artist explores the tension between politics and poetics, individual action and ineffectiveness.

Medina’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A with Francis Alÿs.

Organized in conjunction with the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City and making its only Canadian stop in Toronto, A Story of Negotiation is curated by Mexican curator and historian Cuauhtémoc Medina, and coordinated at the AGO by Kitty Scott, Carol and Morton Rapp Curator, Modern & Contemporary Art. It will be installed on the fifth floor of the AGO’s Contemporary Tower, and is free with general admission.

Francis Alÿs in collaboration with Emilio Rivera, Daniel Toxqui, Julien Devaux, Elena Pardo, Rafael Ortega, Felix Blume and Raul Ortega.
