Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco is a master of the appropriated object — throughout his career, he has turned mundane objects like pool tables, soccer balls, and yellow scooters into extraordinary sculptures. [Tomorrow] Tuesday, November 13 at 6:30 pm, he’s speaking with legendary art critic Benjamin Buchloh about his latest project at the Guggenheim museum. What makes Orozco’s work so great to me is that he manages to find the poetry hidden in just about anything.
