Live webcast: Pedro Reyes at GSD

2010/11/07

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, at 8pm on http://www.radioglobal.org/ and justin.tv

(and live somewhere at Harvard GSD)

Trained as an architect, the Mexico City–based artist Pedro Reyes is interested in the relation between architectural structures and their users. The emergence of transcendental individual and collective experience is always present in his work. He perceives buildings as skeletons in which we live and interact, as in the ideas of the Spanish philosophers Santa Teresa de Avila and San Juan de la Cruz, who addressed the notion of the house as the body and its inhabitant as the soul.

Reyes’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions at Harvard University, Cambridge; Galeria Massimo de Carlo, Milan; and Galeria Enrique Guerrero, Mexico City. His work has been included in the group shows PR’04, Parentesis en la ciudad, Puerto Rico (2004); The Structure of Survival at the 2003 Venice Biennale; and To Be Political It Has to Look Nice, apexart, New York (2004)
