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 19 September 2016, ARTNews

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...

Mountain view: Gabriel Orozco presents new works at Aspen Art Museum Related Press Mountain view: Gabriel Orozco presents new works at Aspen Art Museum 4 August 2016, Wallpaper*

Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco has lived and worked in many places – Berlin, Mexico City, New York, Tokyo and Paris are just a few – but he has not been to Aspen, Colorado.

'Suisai: Tokyo Strokes': Gabriel Orozco at White Cube Hong Kong Related Press 'Suisai: Tokyo Strokes': Gabriel Orozco at White Cube Hong Kong 7 July 2016, ArtAsiaPacific

The Japanese-inspired watercolor paintings that make up Gabriel Orozco’s current show Suisai: Tokyo Strokes, at White Cube Gallery in Hong Kong, seem like quite a departure from the Mexican artist’s more well-known mediums of choice.

Seeing Round Corners: The Art of the Circle review - the joy of life in the round Related Press Seeing Round Corners: The Art of the Circle review - the joy of life in the round 29 May 2016, The Guardian

A circle is itself, pure and simple, but a world of other things too: a bubble, an eye, a planet, the sun. Casually drawn on a scrap of paper, it can be a hole, a halo, a ring or the Earth itself. Since the dawn of mankind we have been looking with wonder at the full moon in the night sky and the coloured discs in each other’s eyes. The lure...

Stanley Kubrick’s seminal film 2001: A Space Odyssey presents a particularly powerful vision of mankind’s trajectory because it so brilliantly simplifies.

Contemporary art still has a lot of work to do in order to gain acceptance from the general public. This is the reason why the city’s main museum dedicated to it—the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo—is usually the most peaceful and uncrowded. But if contemporary art is ever going to win a wider following, it’ll have to rely...
