Gabriel Orozco was born in 1962 in Jalapa, Mexico, and currently lives and works between New York, Paris, and Mexico City. The artist is internationally renowned for concept-based work across various media, and his exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum explores the poetry of chance encounters while blurring the boundary between art and the everyday. Among numerous solo exhibitions, a recent retrospective of his work took place beginning at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and traveling to Kunstmuseum Basel, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and Tate Modern, London. He is the recipient of the 2016 Aspen Award for Art.
