Pedro Reyes

Video Statement for "Collectively Annotated Bibliography"

Pedro Reyes’s statement on the expanded field of public art, and his relationship with the book “Limitless: Contemporary Art in Mexico City” by Edgar Hernàndez and Inbal Miller, part of our research project “Collectively Annotated Bibliography”.

This research, commissioned by Public Art Agency Sweden, puts together a corpus of about 150 printed materials, composed of publications focusing on artistic practices in the expanded field of art with a public purpose, from a decolonial perspective that takes into account the bias, privileges and power positions of those who wrote the dominant perspectives on art history so far.
