A primary role of the Foundation is to field exhibition proposals that include or respond to the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres. In keeping with the artist’s intentions, the Foundation prioritizes curatorial practices that demonstrate an interest in contributing a unique reading of the work, taking into consideration the current moment and the ability for the work and its interpretations to evolve over time, while simultaneously acknowledging the artist’s belief that all audiences have the ability to encounter the work on their own terms.
Individuals preparing proposals are encouraged to explore the Works section of this website, which affords researchers the opportunity to delve more deeply into the totality of Gonzalez-Torres’s oeuvre, as well as to explore the purposeful diversity of methodologies the artist implemented across bodies of work as a way of encouraging complex thinking and questioning.
Prior to the submission of proposals, the Foundation is available to engage in conversation about Gonzalez-Torres's practice, as well as provide more information on the integral and nuanced rights and responsibilities of the curator when exhibiting Gonzalez-Torres’s work, as curatorial decisions actively contribute to the work.
The Foundation actively serves as a liaison between owners and authorized borrowers. The Foundation is available to issue customized loan agreements that respond to the conceptual nature of the work when in line with the owner's wishes and the Foundation's charitable and educational mission.
