Fast food art: Casper Braat, Gabriel Orozco

Casper Braat bought 1,000 hamburgers from McDonalds and put them in an art gallery. Boring.

Gabriel Orozco built a Mexican convenience store, Oxxo, in an art gallery and redesigned some of the products presentation. This is a great concept and, obviously, he asked Oxxo to support the project, which they did. This is about daily goods you buy and art you consume. Obviously, the average Mexican public hasn't understood this and have criticized the show. Read the NYTimes review.
