This event has ended.

Since the early 1990s, Gabriel Orozco has forged a career marked by constant surprise and innovation, roaming freely and fluently among drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, and painting, creating a heterogeneous body of objects that resists categorization. In works ranging from quick snapshots and subtle landscape interventions to meticulously executed sculptures, art intermingles with reality and idea is inseparable from experience. This exhibition examines twenty years of the artist’s career, including pivotal masterworks of the 1990s such as "La DS" (1993),"Yogurt Caps" (1994), and "Black Kites" (1997). A rich selection of objects, drawings, paintings, and photographs complements and provides a context for Orozco’s large sculptures and installations. The exhibition highlights the diversity of Orozco’s materials and variety of his methods while presenting an oeuvre that is unique in formal power and intellectual rigor.
