About Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Considered a major talent of the 20th century, Felix Gonzalez-Torres (Cuban-American, b. 1957 d.1996) was a mixed-media artist whose installations, sculptures, paintings, and works on paper were meticulously composed, minimal expressions of deeply personal narratives. Using materials such as strings of lightbulbs, clocks, stacks of paper, or packaged hard candies for his installations, Gonzalez-Torres often commented on the tragedy of the AIDS crisis, the disease he died of in 1996. His work continues to be exhibited internationally, with retrospectives organized by the likes of the Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Serpentine Gallery, London, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and The Whitney Museum, New York.
