Mobile Matrix, one of Gabriel Orozco's most ambitious projects, involved the retrieval and transformation of a whale skeleton now on view at MoMA. Marco Bassols, Mexico City–based curator and exhibition designer; Molly Nesbit, Professor of Art History at Vassar College and a contributing editor of Artforum; join the artist in discussing this as well as other site-specific and sculpture works. The discussion is moderated by Pablo Helguera, Director, Adult and Academic Programs, Department of Education, The Museum of Modern Art.
