Item description for Laureana Toledo: The Limit by Monica de La Torre, Frances Richard & Laureana Toledo...

"The Name of the Band is The Limit, From Mexico to Sheffield" was Laureana Toledo's addition to Art Sheffield 05: Spectator T during Britain's Sheffield Contemporary Art Forum in 2005. The context of the event was "Spectator T," a fictitious art goer without exposure to contemporary aesthetics, and the idea was to present artworks that would challenge this person's preconceived ideas about art. Thus, Toledo created a cover band that sang songs by local Sheffield groups, and named it after the cult Sheffield nightclub, The Limit, which closed in 1992. The band was created in Mexico, where it played one local concert, then brought to Sheffield, where it played two shows before disbanding.
Like most of Toledo's work, "The Limit" appropriates and reinterprets a pre-existing entity. With this volume, Toledo continues to play with the idea of authorship by pirating an already iconic magazine layout--The Face--and turning it into a labyrinth of information that leaves the reader unsure if he or she is reading about music, a band's story, an artist, Mexico or even just pop culture. Contributors to this volume include Eduardo Abaroa, Rulo, Frances Richard, Monica de la Torre, Gavin Wade, David Byrne, Catherine Lampert, Cuauhtemoc Medina, Pablo Vargas Lugo and Dr. Lakra, among others.
