Last week the thirteenth Sharjah Biennial opened to the public. Sharjah is essentially a suburb of Dubai. Among the participants is Francis Alÿs, the guest on Episode No. 64 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast.
Marisa Mazria Katz tweeted this photograph of Alÿs’s Sharjah installation of his project Don’t Cross the Bridge Before You Get To The River (trailer). (That link is to the relevant video on Alÿs’ own website.) The ‘complete’ piece is installed at Sharjah, including video, paintings and the shoes in Katz’s picture.
