Gabriel Orozco at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh

01/08/2013 - 18/10/2013 The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh
Gabriel Orozco is one of the foremost international artists of our age. Rising to prominence in the early 1990s, he has developed a consistently innovative practice, making work which not only captures the imagination but also powerfully engages with key material and conceptual issues of what it is to make art now. His practice encompasses photography, painting, sculpture and installation, creating some of the most iconic images of recent contemporary art.
The exhibition looks at how the circular geometric motif of this painting – part of a way of thinking for Orozco, a way to organise ideas of structure, organisation and perspective – migrates onto other work, recurring in other paintings, sculptures and photographs. A highlight of the exhibition will be a series of large geometric works on acetate, made in the mid 1990s, yet never before exhibited.

The exhibition is curated by art historian and writer on contemporary art Professor Briony Fer, who contributed ‘Constellations in Dust: Notes on the Notebooks’ to the recent Tate/MOMA/Pompidou retrospective catalogue.
