Jorge Pardo and Michael Govan at Art Catalogues
Artist Jorge Pardo and Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director, discuss the Tecoh project, a private residence in the Yucatan designed by Pardo, which comprises a sprawling series of buildings that incorporates nineteenth-century ruins. Having taken more than six years to realize, Tecoh is Pardo's most ambitious work to date. A book documenting the project was recently published and contains more than one hundred color images and an introduction by Michael Govan, who provides a context for Tecoh within the deeper history of his dialogue with Pardo, which began in 2000 with the artist's installation at Dia:Chelsea.
