Exhibition Opening and Panel Discussion of Erick Meyenberg: The wheel bears no resemblance to a leg

Americas Society

May 3, 2017


Admission is open to the public and free of charge. Prior registration is required.

Americas Society invites you to the exhibition opening and panel discussion of Erick Meyenberg: The wheel bears no resemblance to a leg. Borrowing its enigmatic title from the words of Guillaume Apollinaire, the show chronicles the making of a multilayered project by Mexican artist Erick Meyenberg (Mexico, 1980). Working for two years with a local high school marching band in Mexico City, Meyenberg orchestrated a complex performance which took place throughout the capital and that provokes a reflection on the pedagogical machinery of discipline, education, gender, and the state.

The night of the opening, Meyenberg engages in a conversation with curators Gabriela Rangel (Americas Society) and Lucía Sanromán (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts), and Professor Anna Indych-López (The Graduate Center, CUNY).
