Giants in the Citywas founded by Miami-based visual artistAlejandro Mendoza, produced and organized by Irreversible Projects. "I wanted to create social interaction & dialogue that can lead to a sense of social cohesion," said the renowned artist and curator. The project has been traveling the globe extensively since 2008, showcasing the colossal inflatable sculptures to audiences in places including Monte Carlo, Key West, Mexico City, Miami Beach and more. "Giants in the City was created to encourage interactive activities and relaxation, contemplation in nature, heightened perceptions and the process of creative thought," explained Irreversible Projects’ Noor Blazekovic, who curates and organizes the project alongside Mendoza.
