Gabriel Orozco by Ann Temkin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Gabriel Orozco was born in Veracruz in Mexico in 1962. Since the early 1990s, his career has been characterised by constant surprise and innovation. He roams freely and fluently between drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, and painting, creating a body of work that resists categorization. Ranging from subtle interventions in the landscape to meticulously executed sculptures and quick snapshots, art intermingles with reality and ideas inseparable from experience. This volume, designed in collaboration with the artist, offers a comprehensive examination of Orozco's career from the late 1980s to the present. Critical essays by Ann Temkin, Briony Fer, and Benjamin H. D. Buchloh provide new approaches to grounding Orozco's work in the larger landscape of contemporary art. They are complemented by a richly illustrated chronology that combines biographical information with focused discussions of selected objects. Each entry pays particular attention to Orozco's material practice and introduces the artist's own reflections on the work he has created. Accompanying a major touring retrospective exhibition, this extensively illustrated survey will be the most thorough examination of Orozco's achievements published to date.
