FELIX GONZALEZ-TORRES: SNAPSHOTS

September 26, 1999 - December 18, 1999
CCS Bard Galleries

Artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1957-1996) sent the photographs in “snapshots” to friends and colleagues. The images ranged from humorous tableaux created with toys he collected to evocative scenes of birds flying among the clouds that related to his artwork. Gonzalez-Torres often wrote personal notes, poems, or other musings on the reverse of many of these photographs which provide insight into an artist who blurred the distinction between private life and the public realm in his work. Considered one of the most influential artists of his generation, Gonzalez-Torres used everyday materials in his work to speak of love, loss, and memory. This exhibition of comprises 145 snapshots and twelve photographic works of art. Support for this exhibition was provided by Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz.
