Exhibition Opening: Abraham Cruzvillegas

Event Date: September 12
Time: 6 pm
Location: The Arts Club of Chicago

Performances by Restroy from 6:15 – 7:45

Assembling works from materials sourced in both Chicago and Michoacán, his ancestral home in the West of Mexico, artist Abraham Cruzvillegas meditates on the nature of rootedness and drift in The Ballad of Etc. Fabricated on site, the constructions draw upon traditional Mexican lacquer technique known as “maque” to produce new imagery that is juxtaposed with found materials and products made by Chicago’s skilled workers. Chicago experimental jazz ensemble Restroy joins Cruzvillegas performing interpretations of the artist’s texts throughout the public reception.
