press: Art Basel: a history of sensational art moments

In 2018, marking Art Basel’s first free public exhibition, ‘Autorreconstrucción: To Insist, to Insist, to Insist’, by Mexican artist Abraham Cruzvillegas, was part multidisciplinary installation, part ode to rubbish. The performance piece was comprised of literal trash, devised by Cruzvillegas and the Argentine choreographer Barbara Foulkes. It was installed to inaugurate the newly built 60,000 sq ft Grand Ballroom at Art Basel Miami Beach and organised with curator Philipp Kaiser and the independent New York art space The Kitchen, where the work was shown previously.
