About

Mexican artist Abraham Cruzvillegas is best known for creating sculptural works from local found objects and materials. During the 1990s and 2000s, Cruzvillegas was among the key figures of a new wave of emerging conceptual artistsin Mexico. 

For the past few years, Cruzvillegas has created a body of work under the title autoconstrucción or ‘self-construction’, a term which usually refers to the way Mexicans of his parents’ generation arriving in the capital from rural areas in the 1960s, built their own houses in stages, improvising with whatever materials they could source.
