DAVID ZWIRNER BOOKS

Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Text by Gregg Bordowitz, David Breslin.

One of the most significant artists to emerge in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Felix Gonzalez-Torres' (1957–96) reduced formal vocabulary, conceptual rigor and evocative use of everyday materials resonates with meaning that is at once specific and mutable, rigorous and generous, poetic and political.

Featuring several key bodies of work from throughout the artist’s career, this publication showcases a series of distinct installations at David Zwirner in New York in 2017. Together, in their radical openness to interventions of site, audience and context, the works on view challenge perceived notions of what constitutes an exhibition space, a public, an artwork itself. Despite the resolute abstraction of much of his work, Gonzalez-Torres worked with familiar materials, from his iconic candy spill works to his evocative light string pieces, to mirrors, clocks and curtains. His work activates the architecture of the various spaces, the physicality of the viewer, the past and present, continuously maintaining its relevance.

Opening with details of the exhibition and images of visitors in the spaces, the publication walks the reader through each piece. New texts by Gregg Bordowitz and David Breslin explore the works included while contextualizing Gonzalez-Torres’ contribution to art history.

Looking, identity and other texts in 'Felix Gonzalez-Torres'

Looking, identity and other texts in 'Felix Gonzalez-Torres'

"I love formal issues. Actually they have a very specific meaning. Forms gather meaning from their historical moment. The minimalist exercise of the object being very pure and very clean is only one way to deal with form. Carl Andre said, 'My sculptures are masses and their subject is matter.' But after twenty years of feminist discourse and feminist theory we have come to realize that 'just looking' is not just looking but that looking is invested with identity: gender, socio-economic status, race, sexual orientation.… Looking is invested with lots of other texts." —Felix Gonzalez-Torres, quoted by David Breslin in David Zwirner Books' beautiful new monograph.
