To kick start their 20th anniversary year, the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo is showcasing the work of Mexico-born contemporary artist Gabriel Orozco as one of their three special exhibitions opening this week. This will be Orozco’s first solo exhibition in Japan.
Based in New York, Paris and Mexico City, Orozco is known for creating unique humorous works inspired by everyday objects. For example, his “Ping-Pond Table” is just as the title suggests, a four-player table-tennis table with a pond in its center; Jan. 24-May 10.
