Dancing with Barragán

The timing of this is too good to pass up. Yesterday NOWNESS posted a film by Andres Arochi in which dancers move in slow motion about Luis Barragán's house and studio in Mexico City.

And tonight I'm heading to see Jill Magid's The Proposal as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. In the documentary, part of the larger The Barragán Archives project, the artist "explores the contested legacy of Luis Barragán ... and how his legacy is affected by the fact that a private corporation, Vitra, owns his archives and controls the rights in his name and work." Look for a review of the film in a week or two.
