Felix Gonzalez-Torres: America by Felix Gonzalez-Torres

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.
