Francis Alÿs: Fabiola
September 20, 2007 - April 6, 2008
The first of Dia's projects at the Hispanic Society was concieved by Belgian artist Francis Alÿs, who has long lived and worked in Mexico City. Commissioned by Dia and installed at the Hispanic Society's Beaux-Arts facility in Manhattan, Fabiola comprised almost three hundred portraits of the Christian Saint Fabiola, all of them copies of a lost original.
Francis Alÿs: Fabiola is on tour through August 2011.
Special thanks to The Hispanic Society of America.
