Exhibition Activation: Texas Roller Derby featuring Bat Lips

Activations are included with museum admission.
Advance tickets recommended for timed events.

Abraham Cruzvillegas embraces the concept of autoconstrucción—loosely defined as “self-constructing”—in a vibrant artistic practice imbued with a sense of constant becoming, a curiosity to learn and share information.

Experience art like never before, when Texas Roller Derby brings its best tricks and greatest hits to Abraham Cruzvillegas's sculptures. Meet the community of skaters and learn more about the sport. A performance at 2pm by experimental hardcore punk band Bat Lips amps the energy to complement the art and action.

Based in Austin, Texas Roller Derby launched the modern era of roller derby around the world. Founded in 2001 and run entirely by skaters, it is the oldest league around today, and also home to one of the few banked tracks in existence. TXRD's electrifying style of banked track derby is known to excite crowds in the thousands with athleticism and showmanship.
