A Think & A Drink: Abraham Cruzvillegas and Painter Painter

Part of Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites, Painter Painter

Take a tour of the exhibitions Painter Painter and Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites, followed by discussion, light snacks, and drinks from the cash bar.

Painter Painter presents new work by 15 artists from the US and Europe in a focused survey of recent developments in abstract painting and studio practice. It is the Walker’s first group show to focus exclusively on painting in more than a decade.

One of the most important conceptual artists to come out of the vibrant contemporary art scene in Mexico, Abraham Cruzvillegas has developed a body of work that investigates what he calls autoconstrucción, or “self-construction,” featuring assemblage sculptures made of found objects and building materials. This is the first major presentation to shed light on Cruzvillegas’s unique vision and multifaceted practice.
