On the occasion of the opening of the retrospective exposition in November 2009 at the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City, we present you a movie by Tufic Makhlouf Akl, Through (A)lan Glass. Born in 1932 in Canada, Alan Glass has also been granted Mexican citizenship. Among other things, his work is made up of boxes of « art object », combinations of items unearthed with great choice in junk shops, flea markets and in places where life took him. Alan illustrated himself through unique and spontaneous sparkles of creation relying on the objective fortunes of life.
Engraver, watercolourist, painter, he lived in Paris during post-war era in the circle of André Breton, who proposed him to make an exposition at the Terrain Vague in Paris in 1958. Many other expositions took place later in Canada, New York, Mexico City, Paris and Germany.
