    • AAM exhibiting artist Oscar Murillo delves into the idea of being grounded as he spends time in his small hometown in the mountains of Colombia, finding sites of slowness and solitude in the local rural landscape. What is it like to be a global artist residing in a single location? Murillo looks to his flight # drawing series, often drafted on airplanes, in hotels, and other liminal spaces. Murillo asks viewers to consider what makes them feel present and, ultimately, liberated in this particular moment, one in which we may pause, reboot, and reset.

Cruzvillegas has spent much of his time in quarantine in his apartment in Paris, a city with a historical relationship to enclosure. He has since relocated to the French countryside, where he discusses how his daily life as an artist has shifted, how he has set new patterns, and what he has learned so far.
