Architecture + Design Film Series: The Proposal

Directed by Jill Magid
2018, USA, 86 Minutes

Luis Barragán is among the world’s most celebrated architects of the 20th century. Upon his death in 1988, much of his design work including drawings, models, and letters were privately purchased and have been concealed from the world’s view ever since. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s life and art, artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself, an act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.
