Felix Gonzalez-Torres: The Politics of Relation

A major solo exhibition situates Gonzalez-Torres’s work within the postcolonial discourse

Felix Gonzalez-Torres: The Politics of Relation situates Gonzalez-Torres’s work within the postcolonial discourse and the connected histories between Spain and the Americas, especially as these impact present-day questions around memory, authority, freedom and national identity. A particular emphasis is placed on reading Gonzalez-Torres’s work in relation to Spanish, Latin American and Caribbean culture, not as a simple, singular biographical narrative, but rather as a way of complicating any essentialist reading of his work through any single idea, theme or identity. The show proposes various interpretations stemming from this line of investigation and also highlights the work’s formative influence on queer aesthetics.
