Felix Gonzalez-TorresFelix Gonzalez-Torres

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
By Nancy Spector.

In April 2006, the Department of State announced that the late Cuban-born conceptual artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres would represent the United States at the 2007 Venice Biennale (June 1-November 21). This much sought-after and long-out-of-print volume, reissued by the Guggenheim Museum for the occasion, was originally published to accompany the artist's solo exhibition at the Museum in 1995, one year before his untimely death at the age of 38. Gonzalez-Torres wanted a readable book, not a catalogue per se--something, he said, that one could take to the beach. Pleasure was an integral part of his art (and his life). While he understood that art was innately political and, by necessity, a vehicle for cultural criticism, he believed that social critique and enjoyment were not, by any means, mutually exclusive. For Gonzalez-Torres, beauty was a tool for seduction and a means of contestation.
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 at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, and U.S. Commissioner to the 2007 Venice Biennale.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres: AmericaFelix Gonzalez-Torres: America

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Edited by Nancy Spector. Conversation with Ann Goldstein, Susanne Ghez, Amada Cruz.

This summer, Felix Gonzalez-Torres represents the United States at the 2007 Venice Biennale, only the second time in the modern history of the Venice Biennale that an artist has represented the U.S. posthumously. Published to accompany this landmark exhibition, Felix Gonzalez-Torres: America features full-color plates of each of the works presented, including one that has never before been realized: it is comprised of two adjoining reflecting pools that form a figure eight, the sign of infinity--both a silent mirror on our collective culture and a beacon of hope. Exhibition curator Nancy Spector, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, provides an introductory essay on the artist, and curators Amada Cruz, Susanne Ghez and Ann Goldstein discuss in conversation their proposal of Gonzalez-Torres for the 1995 Biennale.
