Abraham Cruzvillegas:
Hi, how are you, Gonzo?

Exhibition Activation: Evolving Sculpture

Activations are included with museum admission.
Admission is free of charge every Tuesday; complimentary advance tickets for Tuesday activations are encouraged.

Join us in the Jones Center galleries for Evolving Sculpture, an activation of the exhibition Abraham Cruzvillegas: Hi, how are you, Gonzo?

Abraham Cruzvillegas embraces the concept of autoconstrucción—loosely defined as “self-constructing”—in a vibrant artistic practice imbued with a sense of constant becoming, a curiosity to learn and share information.

Working with existing objects in the exhibition, as well as found elements sourced during their visit to Austin, Mexico City-based artists and collaborators Diego Espinosa Cruz González and Nadia Lartigue will transform and interact with a set of sculptural materials in Abraham Cruzvillegas: Hi, how are you, Gonzo? Alternately relocating, displacing, exchanging elements in improvised, choreographed, and sensorial ways, accompanied by body movements and sound, their actions result in an “evolving sculpture.”

This event is improvised and spontaneous, and members of the public of all ages and abilities are invited to observe, listen, and, at times, participate.
