Francis Alÿs

Shadow of two hands forms a still from Francis Alys' Children's Game

A major new exhibition by renowned Mexico-based artist Francis Alÿs – his first and largest institutional solo exhibition in the UK for over a decade.

Celebrating the breadth and importance of his work, this exhibition stages the UK premiere of his critically acclaimed series Children’s Games (1999-present), newly expanded following the Belgian Pavilion at the 2022 Venice Biennale. The exhibition also features a site-specific project in the gallery for the surrounding community and beyond, offering new perspectives on his prolific career.

With a career spanning over three decades, ranging from painting and drawing to video and photography, Alÿs has forged a unique and radical practice characterised by the interplay between art and geopolitical power dynamics. Working in collaboration with local communities around the world, his engagement with cross-cultural contexts from Latin America to North Africa and Middle East operates beyond dominant, Western-centric narratives.
