Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms at the Guggenheim, November 9, 2012—January 13, 2013.
Guggenheim curator Joan Young and artist Gabriel Orozco discuss „Sandstars,“ a sculptural carpet of nearly 1,200 objects that were encountered and gathered from Isla Arena, Mexico, a wildlife reserve, which is simultaneously a whale mating ground, whale cemetery, and industrial wasteland.
The Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms, is a two-part sculptural and photographic installation comprising thousands of items of detritus the artist has gathered at two sites—a playing field near his home in New York and a protected coastal biosphere in Baja California Sur, Mexico, that is also the repository for flows of industrial and commercial waste from across the Pacific Ocean.
Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms is made possible by Deutsche Bank. The Leadership Committee for Gabriel Orozco: Asterisms is gratefully acknowledged for its support.
