Born 1972, Mexico City, Mexico | Lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico
Pedro Reyes uses sculpture, video, and performance to explore the boundaries between the individual and the group, between ordinary experiences and extraordinary moments of interaction. His socially engaged practice seeks alternative methods to restore a peaceful society through pedagogy and participation. Formally trained in architecture, Reyes founded the experimental project space Torre De Los Vientos (Mexico City, 1996–2002). Solo exhibitions of his work include Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, 2011) and the Guggenheim Museum (New York, 2011). He has participated in group exhibitions at Serpentine Gallery (London, 2010) and Museo de Arte Moderno (Mexico City, 2010). His work has been featured in the Liverpool Biennial (2012), Documenta 13 (2012), and the Sharjah Biennial II (2013).
