Known as "the artist among architects," Luis Barragán is among the world's most celebrated architects of the 20th century. Upon his death in 1988, much of his work was locked away in a Swiss bunker, hidden from the world's view. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán's life and art, boundary redefining artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself--a high-wire act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.

"Magid, similar to the architect she reveres, knows the power of a good story and how to poetically construct one."
Leah Pickett - CHICAGO READER

" Jill Magid's "The Proposal," is an investigation and an exhibition, a love letter and a rival's riposte, a protest and an olive branch."
Robert Abele - LOS ANGELES TIMES

" Original Score: 4/4 Who should have access to an artist's legacy? That's only one of many good questions that are raised in this mesmerizing exercise in artistic interrogation."
Michael O'Sullivan - WASHINGTON POST
