Gabriel Orozco's work has had a wide-reaching impact on contemporary art practice. Known for his wanderings through many countries, in both urban and natural environments, Orozco (b. 1962) has worked without a studio since the late 1980s.

He has transformed found objects and situations through subtle but radical interventions and has created enigmatic and intimate works that reveal his thought processes.

The first major survey of Gabriel Orozco’s work in Mexico, this mid-career retrospective features over 140 works including  drawings, photographs, paintings and sculpture.
