    Abraham Cruzvillegas: Hi, How Are You, Gonzo?, The Contemporary Austin

     

    Abraham Cruzvillegas’s practice begins with the concept of autoconstrucción—loosely defined as “self-construction,” an idea rooted in transformation, exchange, and play. During the exhibition, a series of site-specific, assemblage sculptures will be enlivened through music, performances, workshops, cooking, storytelling, art making, skateboarding, and more, in “activations” led by the artist’s collaborators from Mexico City and invited community partners from Austin.

    Abraham Cruzvillegas and Anya Gallaccio: Special Project at Ignacio Zaragoza Avenue

     

    Ciclónica is a group exhibtion on the Ignacio Zaragoza Avenue (Mexico-Puebla motorway), where chain-link fencing separates the highway from the adjoining neighborhoods; this road is used to enter the city from its south and east sides, meaning some local businesses use these fences to advertise their services. Ciclónica invited artists to create an image or a text, reproduced as digital prints on one square meter canvases. The works were mounted on the fences along the motorway, and distributed in the following stations: Tejones, Caseta Vieja, Cárcel, Peñón Viejo, Clínica 25, Tepalcates.

     

    The fence's original use for advertising presupposes a certain visibility for passersby and for people using public transport. In this way, the city is put to use, especially through the so-called peripheries,  as an exhibition platform to show the works of various national and international artists to those who travel through, or are displaced by, the city.
