Ad Usum: To be Used, Paperback / softback Book


"Ad Usum" is the Catalogue of the retrospective exhibit of celebrated Mexican artist Pedro Reyes mounted at the Carpenter Center and organized by the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University.This is the first volume entirely dedicated to the works of Reyes, who is considered to be one of the most innovative and radical young Mexican artists.Comprehensive in its scope, the volume covers all the production of Reyes' career from the mid-1990s until the present - starting with the celebrated series of semi-utopian architectural structures, passing through his performance and video pieces of the early 2000s, and culminating with the collaborative projects in which he has been engaged in recent years.This volume includes interviews by the artist with Antanas Mockus, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Augusto Boal, critical texts by Doris Sommer, Ute Meta Bauer (MIT), and the exhibit's curator, Jose Falconi.
