Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible Ocula Report Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible 17 Apr 2019 : Federica Bueti for Ocula

I first visited Havana in November 2016, a few days after Fidel Castro died, and just under a year before Hurricane Irma hit Cuba in September 2017. Since then, much has changed, including the hand-painted signs that punctuate the journey from the airport to the city centre, which today do not celebrate the revolution so much as the 'Unidad y...

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.

POSTCARD FROM ZONA MACO 2017 Related Press POSTCARD FROM ZONA MACO 2017 Whitewall : 15 February 2017

I can only describe my recent escape from the New York City winter with one word: 'joy.' Last week was my first time to ZONA MACO and to Mexico altogether, and I have to admit that it exceeded my expectations.

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...
