    Francis Alÿs: The Moment Where Sculpture Happens

    Presented by at Davis Museum and Cultural Center

    February 16 - June 5, 2011


    Francis Alÿs: The Moment Where Sculpture Happens

    Joan Levine Freedman ‘57 and Richard I. Freedman Gallery
    Friends of Art Gallery

    Francis Alÿs: The Moment Where Sculpture Happens features the artist’s subtle performances and extended documentation of life in the congested colonial center of Mexico City. This multimedia presentation includes 35mm slide shows, video projections, and a light-table with slides and studies, to demonstrate the diverse range of Alÿs’s artistic practice over the past 20 years. This will be the artist’s first one-man show in the Boston area.

    Francis Alÿs is one of the leading figures on the international contemporary art scene. This exhibition highlights the Davis’s recent acquisition of Alÿs’s major painting triptych, Cityscape (1996–97), and related drawings, also on view.

    This exhibition is funded by the Wellesley College Friends of Art, whose generosity also made possible the acquisition of Francis Alÿs’s Cityscape.
