    • AAM exhibiting artist Abraham Cruzvillegas recently remarked that “slowing down is much more work than I imagined!” For many of us, this period is marked by new modes of efficiency and ingenuity which call into question our previously unquestioned processes of creative production. Cruzvillegas has spent much of his time in quarantine in his apartment in Paris, a city with a historical relationship to enclosure.
