About The Work

The first feature film from provocative contemporary artist Jill Magid, The Proposal, is centered around Magid’s efforts to retrieve the archives of famous Mexican architect Luis Barragán. Upon his death in 1988, much of Barragán’s work was sold to a Swiss corporation and hidden from the world’s view. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s art, Magid creates a daring proposition — a high-wire act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art. Interrogating issues of intellectual property, legacy, access, and ego, The Proposal is a critically-lauded tour de force that will be of particular intrigue to the Center for Art Law’s community of artists and art lawyers.

The winning bidder will receive an official limited-edition DVD copy of the 83-minute documentary film.
