Felix Gonzalez-Torres Book Launch

MON, Mar 27, 2017
7–8:30 pm

Floor One, The Whitney Shop

The Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation, Elena Filipovic, David Breslin, and the Whitney Shop invite you to a special talk and book event to celebrate the release of Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Specific Objects Without Specific Form.

Elena Filipovic, Director of Kunsthalle Basel, will be in conversation with David Breslin, the Whitney’s DeMartini Family Curator and Director of the Collection.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Specific Objects Without Specific Form documents the groundbreaking exhibition curated by Elena Filipovic with Danh Vo, Carol Bove, and Tino Sehgal that traveled to multiple institutions in 2010 and 2011. At each venue, Filipovic curated a version of the exhibition and midway through its duration an artist was invited to completely reconsider and re-install their own version of the exhibition without any limitations. The book includes installation views from each version of the exhibition and an expansive illustrated checklist of each artwork in every instance of its installation, which illustrates for the reader the role that ongoing change and renewal plays in Gonzalez-Torres’s work.

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required. Email info@felixgonzalez-torresfoundation.org if you would like to attend.
