Francis Alÿs Exhibition

October 26, 2013 - January 26, 2014

¥30 – ¥1000

Francis Alÿs

Mexico-based Francis Alÿs (born 1959 in Belgium) walks the streets
to cast his eye on social problems ubiquitous to everyday life,
which he allegorizes so as to bring them to the surface. Trained
in architecture, he is an artist who builds worlds of poetical
works through a diverse range of expression including video,
painting and photography. Via the not-at-all-special act of
walking, he reflects people’s lives and the political issues
that are inseparable from them. This exhibition presents a
broad selection from his oeuvre, ranging from representative
early works created in Mexico to recent ones themed on the
Strait of Gibraltar, which links two continents and their
differing cultures.

Open 10:00-17:00 (January 25 &26 until 19:00)
Closed Mondays and December 27 – January 1
