Félix González-Torres at Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, Las Vegas.-
Until December 31, 2022
“The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is proud to present “Untitled” (L.A.), an exhibition that focuses on a single artwork of the same name by the late Cuban-American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres.
“Untitled” (L.A.) uses quotes from the artist, his critics, and his friends to highlight the generous ambiguity of this enigmatic ‘candy spill’ piece. How many different ways can we approach it? As a process of institutional gift-giving, as a subversive tweaking of the museum as an institution, as a response to the materiality of Minimalism, as an embodiment of ideas he absorbed from Walter Benjamin, as a memorial to his great love, Ross Laycock (1959 – 1991, a victim of the AIDS virus), or as all of these and more?”
