Abstract:

"The sign painting project was carried out over a span of years. ... By mid 1994 Francis Alÿs worked primarily with Juan García, Enrique Huerta and Emilio Rivera, professional sign painters (rótulistas) in Mexico City, and so until the project was closed in 1997. ... The sign painters copied individual paintings by Alÿs, each in their own way. Taking his cue from these personal interpretations, Alÿs developed new motifs and circulated them among the rótulistas, initiating a sequence of images that resulted in seventy-four different motifs."--Page 40.
