The page devoted to conceptual artist Abraham Cruzvillegas (b. 1968) at the Walker Art Center summarizes his work in these words –
"Informed by the sociopolitical contexts of Latin America, Cruzvillegas has garnered much attention for his dynamic assemblage sculptures made of found objects. Interested in improvised building materials and techniques, he roots his sculptural practice within the urban landscape of his childhood home in Ajusco, a district in the south of Mexico City."
The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis mounted an exhibition in 2013 –
"Featuring 30 to 35 individual sculptures and installations, along with his recent experiments in video, film, and performance, Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites is the first major presentation to shed light on the artist’s unique vision and multifaceted practice."
