Originally published to accompany the artist's solo exhibition Felix Gonzalez-Torres at the Guggenheim Museum in 1995, and reissued on the occasion of the 2007 Venice Biennale (June 1-November 21), where Felix Gonzalez-Torres would represent the United States.
Written by Nancy Spector in close consultation with the artist and reflecting and expanding upon his ideas at the time, Felix Gonzalez-Torres presents a thematic overview of the artist's rich, many-layered practice, including the signature paper stacks, candy spills, light strings and billboards--and demonstrates his continued resonance today.
Nancy Spector is Chief Curator and Artistic Director at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and U.S. Commissioner to the 2007 Venice Biennale.
