America. Félix González-Torres
I want to make art for people who watch the Golden Girls and sit in a big, brown, Lazy-boy chair. Theyre part of my public too, I hope. Felix Gonzalez-Torres
The United States Pavilion at 2007 Venice Biennale was dedicated to the Cuban-born American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres (19571996). This book documents the works selected for the exhibition, including a piece realized there for the first time. Biennale commissioner Nancy Spector, Chief Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, contributes an introductory overview of Gonzalez-Torress oeuvre. In a conversation, curators Amada Cruz, Susanne Ghez, and Ann Goldstein discuss their proposal to nominate the artist for the 1995 Biennale.
