Pedro Friedeberg "Extravagancias y Pendejadas" @ FIFTY24MX, Mexico CityJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 26 Oct 2011
Maybe you know Pedro Friedeberg as the man behind the now infamous Hand Chair. But did you know the Mexico City-based Friedeberg, along with Frida Kahlo, were the only two Mexican artists recognized by Andre Breton as part of the Surrealist movement? That makes Friedeberg the last of the Mexican Surrealists, and he opens a new exhibition in Mexico City on Thursday, October 27 at FIFTY24MX Gallery.
Here is a little background on Friedeberg...
We prefer his bio on himself from the Friedeberg website: "I get up at the crack of noon and, after watering my pirañas, I breakfast off things Corinthian. Later in the day I partake in an Ionic lunch followed by a Doric nap. On Tuesdays I sketch a volute or two, and perhaps a pediment, if the mood overtakes me. Wednesday I have set aside for anti-meditation. On Thursdays I usually relax whereas on Friday I write autobiographies”
When was the last time you took a Doric nap?
