Francis Alÿs

TAGS: Art Exhibit
Thu 4/26 - Sun 11/25

ICA Miami hosts a presentation of work by famed Mexican painter Francis Alÿs based on three important multipanel works in the museum’s collection. The artist’s “Sign Painting Project” series (1993–97), one of his first important bodies of work, involves his close collaboration with three commercial sign makers in Mexico City who copied, enlarged, or otherwise interpreted his original paintings. Alÿs in turn made new versions of his paintings based on these interpretations, calling into question the final works’ authorship and value. This body of work is typical to Alÿs for its deft navigation of social and economic factors. Reflecting on the declining art of commercial sign painting in a digital and hyper-capitalist age, the artist considers the culture of image making and disrupts the market, redistributing value to traditional image makers.
