Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Specific Objects without Specific Form
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 WIELS, Brussels; Fondation Beyeler, Basel/Riehen; and MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt in 2010 and 2011. Filipovic curated a retrospective at all three venues, evolving at each location. Midway through each exhibition, Filipovic's installation was removed or altered by one of the artists who was invited to completely reconsider and re-install their own version of the exhibition without any limitations. The result of this structure was a profound meditation on the role that ongoing change and renewal play in Gonzalez-Torres's work.
The book has been years in the making as Elena Filipovic and the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation worked together to find the best ways to present the complexities and nuances of the exhibition. The book includes installation views of each version of the exhibition and an expansive illustrated checklist with images of each artwork in every instance of its installation. The book's structure allows the reader to see the immensely different ways the artworks can be installed as well as how context acted on and through each piece.
