Item description for Francis Alys: The Politics of Rehearsal by Russell Ferguson & Ann Philbin...

The Politics of Rehearsal accompanies the first large-scale American museum exhibit on Francis Alys, one of the most acclaimed artists working today. The centerpiece of the book is Alys' Rehearsal (Ensayo) series, but a number of related earlier works are included. "Ensayo 1, 1999-2000" shows a red Volkswagen Beetle attempting to ascend a steep hill in Tijuana: its attempts are synchronized with the soundtrack of Mexican danzon musicians rehearsing. "Ensayo 2, 2005" follows the rehearsal of a dancer practicing a striptease, and "Ensayo 3" will be produced by Alys specifically for the exhibition. Other works include "When Faith Moves Mountains" and "Song for Lupita," as well as many paintings, photographs and drawings. This significant new publication contains a DVD and an in-depth exploration of Alys's oeuvre by Russell Ferguson, organizer of the exhibition, focusing on the theme of rehearsal, which is so characteristic of his work.
