DEEDS CALENDAR: James Lee Byars ”Perfect is the Question” in Retiro-Park, Velázquez-Palace | 10.05-01.09.2024

Dedicated to one of the most enigmatic and striking figures in 20th century art, this exhibition brings together a significant group of works by James Lee Byars (Detroit, Michigan, 1932 – Cairo, 1997) that reveal his profound engagement with all that transcends the boundaries of logic. Byars’ visual and performative language, which moves between mysticism, spirituality and physicality, includes sculptures, installations, performances, drawings, the spoken word and the organisation of his own exhibitions, which are conceived as installations.
