The Madrid-based artist Santiago Sierra presents 52 Canvases Exposed to Mexico City’s Air (2019) in the Saligman Family Atrium. Known for his provocative performance and installation art that deals with the topic of social inequities, the artist has created with this work a visualization of the toxicity of contemporary urban life.
