Marcel Dzama Brings Chess and Mariachi To Chelsea

Chess blog for latest news and trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Marcel Dzama's exhibit titled 'Behind Every Curtain' is anchored by the artist’s film, 'A Game of Chess', which features elaborately costumes characters dancing and fighting across a giant chessboard. The exhibition opened today in Manhattan.

Dzama's film was produced in Guadalajara, Mexico and relays the artists influence of local crafts and religious traditions, not just through the film but also the related sculpture, dioramas and drawings that accompany it. Here is the nice video.
