Francis Alyss captures Mexico City's urban sprawl and poverty through Sleepers, a projected sequence of more than 80 slides depicting people and dogs snoozing on the city's soot-covered streets.

Among the more entertaining works is Gabriel Orozco's Oval Billiard Table, which features a cue ball dangling from the ceiling on a string so it always swings back to the player, and a pocketless table you can't sink the balls into.

Gabriel Kuri, who's responsible for the big chicharrón, also has a piece in which he crammed an old, dusty wheelbarrow full of colorful Christmas ornaments.
