The diverse materials below are provided to help broaden engagement and encourage independent thinking.

The four audio recordings were developed for this exhibition. They offer subjective and/or auxiliary content and perspectives.

This exhibition also affords an opportunity to present a selection of research from the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation’s in-process Core Tenets Project, which provides unprecedented access to the language around the specific, yet sometimes open-ended nature and structure of the works.

In addition to the materials below, rich contextual details on each work featured in the exhibition can be found in the press release.

Core Tenets

While the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation’s main priority is fostering and facilitating individuals’ direct experiences with the work, which follows Gonzalez-Torres’s primary intention, a significant activity of the Foundation is articulating the most effective language around the nature and structure of the works.

While the Core Tenets are inherently documents that may shift over time, at present, they are in process and reflect the Foundation’s ongoing research activities. Current in-process Core Tenets documents for portrait works, candy works, and billboards are shared here to provide further information on the works in this exhibition.

The Core Tenets, for the below works and others, will continue to be updated on the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation’s website as research progresses and language develops.*

Core Tenets for Billboards (In-process)

Core Tenets for Candy Works (In-process)

Core Tenets for Portrait Works (In-process)

*If the Core Tenets are cited, the Foundation requests that the citation describe the language as part of an in-process, ongoing, or developing language project. As in: “An in-process document shared on the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation’s website describes the core tenets of the work as…”
