Pedro Reyes in "Mexico City" - Season 8 | Art21

Art21 proudly presents an artist segment, featuring Pedro Reyes, from the "Mexico City" episode in the ninth season of the "Art in the Twenty-First Century" series.

"Mexico City" premiered in September 2016 on PBS. Watch now on PBS and the PBS Video app:

Pedro Reyes designs ongoing projects that propose playful solutions to social problems. From turning guns into musical instruments, to hosting a People’s United Nations to address pressing concerns, to offering ecologically-friendly grasshopper burgers from a food cart, Reyes transforms existing problems into ideas for a better world. When encountering a project by the artist, viewers are often enlisted as participants or as creators of objects in collaborative workshops. Originally trained as an architect, Reyes is acutely aware of how people interact with the built environment, with many of the artist’s works taking the form of enclosures.
