Gabriel Orozco

b. 1962, Mexico

Described as one of the most original and influential contemporary artists of his generation, Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco makes use of a multitude of media and practices, including installation, sculpture, painting, drawing, and video that addresses philosophical and phenomenological issues that are representative by a focus on everyday objects, revealing the spatial, poetic relationships between objects, as well as their frangible correlation to human beings. His use of found materials, such as a small, heart-shaped lump of clay, a deflated football, an empty shoebox, or yogurt container lids, draws attention to the experience of the viewer, namely how they view and understand the object and the space it is in.

Rarely before have we seen such a long and varied list of contributors, as we do in Marian Goodman Gallery's group show Animality. The 'cast of creatures' ranges from dogs, camels, fish to octopi, and charts a history from George Orwell to Gabriel Orozco by way of Marcel Broodthaers. Curator Jens Hoffmann, never one to turn down a...

Say hello to my little zine! The NY Art Book Fair takes over Moma PS1 Related Press Say hello to my little zine! The NY Art Book Fair takes over Moma PS1 ARTNews : 19 September 2016

The NY Art Book Fair draws a huge crowd every year, and so it wasn’t a surprise that there were lines everywhere at this year’s edition—lines to get into the bathroom, lines to see certain booths, lines for the KAWS signing (the longest line of all), and lines simply to get into the fair itself. But those lines moved quickly, and...
