Francis Alÿs: Gibraltar Focus

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo has been giving some generous exposure to Francis Alÿs this spring and summer, with two shows devoted to the oeuvre of the Belgian-born, Mexico-based conceptual artist. Following on from the career-spanning Mexico Survey, the museum now hosts a more recent work. Don't Cross the Bridge Before You Get to the River revolves around a massive performance art piece that Alÿs orchestrated on both sides of the Gibraltar Strait in 2008, documented across a hundred-odd pieces of video, photos, drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations.
