In advance of the gallery’s official launch in May 2018, kurimanzutto new york will activate its project space with by presenting an installation by Abraham Cruzvillegas from his ongoing series Autoconstrucción—on view from April 2–May 12, 2018. A fundamental part of the artist’s practice is influenced by the collaborative building process undertaken by dwellers of improvised urban settlements around the world—favelas, barrios, slums, or shanti towns—who rely on recycled and scavenged materials to ingeniously, but often precariously, respond to their rapidly changing living situations. Composed of a constellation of locally-found objects suspended throughout the project space, the installation at kurimanzutto new york represents Cruzvillegas’ continuing exploration of placemaking and identity. Concurrently, Abraham Cruzvillegas will present a multidisciplinary performance at The Kitchen that combines elements of theater, music, and dance in a harmonic activation of an assemblage of found-objects. On view from April 5–7, 2018, the performance will be anchored by a site-speciﬁc sculpture similarly composed of found materials sourced in New York, that will be suspended within The Kitchen and triggered by the artist and two renowned performers that have long collaborated with him: Bárbara Foulkes, an Argentinian dancer and choreographer; and Andrés García Nestitla, a dancer and musician from the Huasteca region of Mexico.
