New York, January 11 – February 10, 2007
Curated by Claudia Arozqueta
Paulina Lasa is determined to change the world. She takes a pro-active and intentionally naïve approach to transforming her urban environment which is infected with social malaise, bureaucratic red tape, and almost imperceptible abuse that take place on a daily basis. Her multi-media attempt at changing the world through video work, drawings, light boxes, and a special performance is a refreshing and welcome strategy. On display is A Month in Mexico City or Why Can’t I be Michael Moore?, a prescient documentary that examines her malfunctioning surroundings.
