Gabriel Orozco’s whale hangs in Austria, Hiroshi Sugimoto makes scarves, Collier Schorr collaborates for VICE, and more in this week’s roundup:

  • Gabriel Orozco‘s work is on display in Gabriel Orozco: Natural Motion at the Kunsthaus Bregenz (Bregenz, Austria). Featured are new works conceived specially for the exhibition, as well as the artist’s fifteen-meter-long synthetic resin reconstruction of a whale skeleton. The show runs through October 6.
  • Mark Dion‘s The Octagon Room is on view at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (North Adams, MA). Viewers are invited to browse through an abandoned office, the contents of which represent the artist’s own labyrinthine history of the past eight years. The exhibition runs through January 20, 2014.
  • John Baldessari and Ed Ruscha recently discussed the work of Richard Artschwager at the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles, CA). Moderated by Bob Monk, a Gagosian Gallery director, the conversation has been posted online:

  • Mike Kelley‘s Mobile Homestead Videos are showing at Site Gallery in Sheffield (United Kingdom). Made in collaboration with Artangel, the videos were shot in Detroit, where Kelley grew up, in conjunction with his Mobile Homestead installation now at MOCA Detroit. The film program runs through July 20.
  • Hiroshi Sugimoto‘s approach to Polaroid photography prompted Pierre-Alexandre Dumas, artistic director of Hermès, to invite the artist to produce a scarf for the third edition of Carré d’Artist. Sugimoto and Dumas selected twenty Polaroids to transpose onto silk. Each image has been produced seven times for a total of 140 limited-edition scarves.
  • Barry McGee and Collier Schorr are featured in this year’s VICE photo issue. The editors paired their favorite photographers with an artist or creative person to make a new body of work. McGee teamed up with Jim Goldberg; Schorr joined forces with Ryan McGinley, Marilyn Minter, and Roe Etheridge. The issue is on newsstands now.
