For his first institutional work in New York since 2007, Abraham Cruzvillegas combines elements of sculpture, dance, and music to build on his working methodology of autoconstrucción (or “self-construction”). The artist will produce a sculpture using everyday objects and refuse sourced in the vicinity of The Kitchen in Chelsea, a neighborhood currently under large-scale construction and development. This work will be activated in a twenty-minute performance by choreographer Bárbara Foulkes, whose improvised, aerial dance mirrors the suspension of the objects on display. The performance features musical intervention by Andrés García Nestitla. Organized by Tim Griffin and Rachel Valinsky.
