Item description for Francis Alys: The Sign Painting Project 1993-97 by Francis Alys, Juan Garcia, Emilio Rivera & Enrique Huerta...

The Belgian-born conceptual painter and artistic interventionist Francis Alys developed The Sign Painting Project over a period of four years. He began by painting fairly small canvases depicting people and objects in the flat, brightly-colored manner of billboard advertisements. The artist, who currently lives in Mexico, then asked local sign-painters Juan Garcia, Enrique Huerta and Emilio Rivera to copy and enlarge his paintings. The result of the artists' combined labors is a set of 120 paintings that reveal variations on particular themes, and that inevitably provoke questions about collaboration, authorship and originality. This book, which features 300 color plates, is a catalogue raisonne of that project.

Reviews - What do customers think about Francis Alys: The Sign Painting Project 1993-97?

Yes! A printed version of Alys Poetic!  Jan 21, 2008
So far Alys's books have looked like artist's books. Finally a cathalogue that encompasses his main works, in a beautiful edition and strong texts by him as his fellow curator.
