Francis Alÿs's major museum exhibition A Story of Negotiation was on view at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto in 2016 and 2017. Three large-scale video works make up the foundation of the exhibition: Don’t Cross the Bridge Before You Get to the River (2008), Tornado (2000-2010), and REEL-UNREEL (2011). Each work is accompanied by a selection of related paintings, drawings, and sculptural works.

The show was first presented at the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City in 2015, followed by the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA) and Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana, Cuba.
