Opening-Day Talk: Abraham Cruzvillegas



Abraham Cruzvillegas joins exhibition curator Clara Kim for a conversation about autoconstrucción, the artist’s practice of giving new life to everyday materials and found objects. More than a method or technique, he calls it “a way of thinking—a way of life.” The talk, which includes interludes of music ranging from the artist’s own songs to punk, is held in conjunction with the opening of Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites, a major survey of work by one of the most acclaimed artists from Mexico’s vibrant contemporary scene.
