Francis Alÿs is widely considered to be among the most impor¬tant artists working today. He works in a wide range of mediums, including painting, drawing, film, video, and photography, each telling visual stories, potent myths that can be told and re-told. From the beginning of his career as an artist, Alÿs has adopted a way of working that tends to reject conclusions in favor of repetition and recalibration.
