Resisting confinement to a single medium, critically acclaimed Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco examines the poetry of chance encounters while blurring the boundary between art and the everyday. Known for works such as the Citroën automobile surgically reduced to two-thirds its normal width (La DS, 1993) and a human skull covered with a graphite grid (Black Kites, 1997), Orozco explores complex geometry, mapping, and anatomy in a creative, playful, and inventive manner. His AAM exhibition is curated by Heidi Zuckerman and will present several new works. Gabriel Orozco is the recipient of the 2016 Aspen Award for Art.
AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund. General exhibition support is provided by the Toby Devan Lewis Visiting Artist Fund.
Major support for Gabriel Orozco’s exhibition is provided by Jill and Jay Bernstein. Additional support is provided by Allison and Warren Kanders, the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation for Latin American Art, and the AAM National Council.plus
