Description

Belgian artist Francis Alÿs employs a broad range of media, from painting to performance, and his diverse body of work often explores urbanity and spatial objectivity through investigations of the tension between poetics and politics, individual action and impotence. Operating within the interdisciplinary space of art, architecture, and social practice, his idealistic and symbolic actions accentuate political challenges and anxieties. Central to this catalogue for a solo exhibition of work by Alÿs at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo are his actions at Key West (USA) and Havana, and at the Strait of Gibraltar. Included are essays by curators Yuki Kamiya and Kazuhiko Yoshizaki.
