Xilitla is the name of a film presented by British-born, Mexico City-based artist Melanie Smith (born 1965) at the 54th Venice Biennial in 2011.

Born in the UK in 1965, Melanie Smith has lived and worked in Mexico City since 1989. An internationally showing artist, she is represented in Los Angeles by Patrick Painter Gallery. This volume presents Smith's reflections on the anonymous Mexican town of Parres, gesturing toward the, "symbolic space brought about by the self-reflexivity of painting."

Melanie Smith: Spiral City & Other Vicarious PleasuresMelanie Smith: Spiral City & Other Vicarious Pleasures

Published by Turner/ A&R Press/ColecciÛn Jumex.
Text by Dawn Ades, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Eduardo Abaroa. Contribution by David Batchelor

The English-born artist Melanie Smith has been involved in the Mexican art scene since the late 1980s, and Spiral City & Other Vicarious Pleasures is her first significant monograph--published in conjunction with the artist's 2006 retrospective exhibition at Mexico City's University Museum of Sciences and Arts, commonly known as MUCA. This volume also serves as an introduction to the various media that Smith has been exploring since her arrival in Mexico two decades ago. It includes video, photography, installation and painting. Spiral City is a supersaturated project that provides the reader with visual and written information without ever falling into the predictable patterns of a traditional retrospective catalogue. With texts by Dawn Ades, Cuauhtémoc Medina and Eduardo Abaroa, and a written conversation between David Batchelor and the artist.
