Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in United States
Gabriel Orozco



Gabriel Orozco
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
 
Gabriel Orozco (Mexican, b. 1962)  roams freely among drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, and painting. He blurs the boundaries between the art object and the everyday environment, instead situating his contributions in a place that merges "art" and "reality," whether in drawings made on airplane boarding passes or in sculptures made from recovered trash.

Many of Orozco's works—which are often created specifically for the occasion of an exhibition—have become indisputable classics of 1990s art, 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). This exhibition presents many of these works.
