Félix González-Torres, one of the most influential artists of his generation, lived and worked resolutely according to his own democratic ideology, determined to “make this a better place for everyone.” Combining principles of Conceptual Art, minimalism and political activism, González-Torres’ arsenal included public billboards, giveaway piles of candy or posters and ordinary objects (clocks, mirrors, light fixtures) often used to startling effect. His work challenged notions of public and private space, originality, authorship and the authoritative structure in which he functioned.
