The Museum of Modern Art to Present Exhibition Exploring 20 Years of the Work of Gabriel Orozco
NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Modern Art presents Gabriel Orozco, an exhibition focusing on 20 years of the work of Gabriel Orozco (Mexican, b. 1962), December 13, 2008 through March 1, 2010. Orozco emerged at the beginning of the 1990s as one of the most intriguing and original artists of his generation. Known for a body of work that is unique in its formal power and intellectual rigor, Orozco resists confinement to one medium, and roams freely and fluently among drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, and painting. From one project to the next, he deliberately blurs the boundaries between the art object and the everyday environment, instead situating his contribution in a place that merges “art” and “reality,” whether in exquisite drawings made on airplane boarding passes or sculptures made from recovered trash.

Many of Orozco’s works—often specifically created for the occasion of an exhibition—have become indisputable classics of the art of the 1990s, such as the Citroën automobile surgically reduced to two-thirds its normal width (La DS, 1993) and the human skull covered with a graphite grid (Black Kites, 1997). This exhibition will provide the opportunity for many of these to be seen for the first time in New York and combine them with rich selections of work from Orozco’s vast body of smaller objects, paintings, and works on paper.

Gabriel Orozco is organized by Ann Temkin, the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture, The Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition in New York will be followed by presentations at the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Musée national d’art moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and at Tate Modern, London.
