Illusion Brought Me Here is the first publication that maps out the extensive body of work of Mexican artist Mario García Torres. New essays by Sophie Berrebi, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Rulo David, Vincenzo de Bellis, Caroline Dumalin, and Tom McDonough look at the way García Torres’s work addresses ideas of failure, uncertainty, and memory, and at how the counter-narratives he weaves invite us to revisit and rethink the legacies of conceptual art in the Americas and Europe. This catalogue, published on the occasion of the artist’s first survey exhibition in the US and in Europe, also features a richly illustrated and annotated selection of nearly fifty works, the most comprehensive compilation of the artist’s practice available in print.
