The Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim: Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 09-11-2012 13-01-2013 15 The Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim: Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms Gabriel Orozco's Asterisms, the final project in Deutsche Guggenheim's commissioning program, is a two-part sculptural and photographic installation comprising thousands of items of detritus Orozco has gathered at two sites -- a playing field near the artist's home in New York and a protected coastal biosphere in Baja California, Mexico, that is also the repository for flows of industrial and commercial waste from across the Pacific Ocean. The two related bodies of work provocatively oscillate between the macro and the micro and invoke several of the artist's recurring motifs, including the traces of erosion, poetic encounters with mundane materials, and the ever-present tension between nature and culture. The show also underscores and amplifies Orozco's subtle practice of subjecting the world to personal, idiosyncratic systems. The exhibition is organized by Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and Joan Young, Director, Curatorial Affairs, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue. This exhibition is made possible by Deutsche Bank. The Leadership Committee for Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms is gratefully acknowledged for its support. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=113332 Solomon R.
