Cahiers d'Art 2016-2017 Gabriel Orozco

Staffan Ahrenberg, Sam Keller, Hans Ulrich Obrist

Description

Featuring the work of Gabriel Orozco, one of the most important contemporary artists of his generation, this issue of Cahiers d’Art explores the artist’s recurring themes of geometry, games, and working tables throughout commissioned texts by Briony Fer, Benjamin Buchloh, André Rottmann, and Béatrice Gross.

Abundantly illustrated with series of major works as well as the artist’s most recent and largely unpublished works, this unique publication also includes an original silk-screened artwork made by Orozco for the issue. Also included in this issue are excerpts from the Catalogue Raisonné of the drawings of Frank Gehry by Jean-Louis Cohen; a text by Béatrice Gross on the late wall drawings of Sol LeWitt; a visual story of the creative process behind the newly opened Skulpturenhalle housing the Thomas Schütte Foundation, the largest building constructed from a model by the artist; a comprehensive essay on the influence of Cahiers d’Art on the work of Picasso, specifically focusing on his ceramics, by Picasso scholar Harald Theil; portfolios of recent works by Adel Abdessemed and John Giorno; and an essay by Daniel Birnbaum.
