Abraham Cruzvillegas: Self-Construction
Ford Engineering Design Center, ITW Room
Abraham Cruzvillegas (b. 1968) is one of the most important conceptual artists of his generation to come out of the vibrant art and architecture scene in Mexico. Over the past 15 years, Cruzvillegas has developed a riveting body of work that investigates what he calls autoconstrucción, or “self-construction,” informed by the sociopolitical contexts of Latin America and inspired by improvised building materials and techniques. Cruzvillegas will discuss his current project entitled the The Water Trilogy, which focuses on water in urban contexts, including specific issues of pollution and water shortage. He will also discuss his installation Empty Lot which consists of discarded materials from various London construction sites built into the structure of the installation.
