This summer, Felix Gonzalez-Torres represents the United States at the 2007 Venice Biennale, only the second time in the modern history of the Venice Biennale that an artist has represented the U.S. posthumously. Published to accompany this landmark exhibition, Felix Gonzalez-Torres: America features full-color plates of each of the works presented, including one that has never before been realized: it is comprised of two adjoining reflecting pools that form a figure eight, the sign of infinity--both a silent mirror on our collective culture and a beacon of hope. Exhibition curator Nancy Spector, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, provides an introductory essay on the artist, and curators Amada Cruz, Susanne Ghez and Ann Goldstein discuss in conversation their proposal of Gonzalez-Torres for the 1995 Biennale.

Soft cover. Photographically illustrated wrappers; no dust jacket as issued. Installations by Felix Gonzalez-Torres. Essay (in English and Italian) by Nancy Spector. Conversation with Amanda Cruz, Ann Goldstein and Susanne Ghez. 80 pp., with 27 four-color plates. 5-1/2 x 7-3/4 inches. Published on the occasion of the 2007 Venice Biennale. New in publisher's shrink wrap. From the publisher: "Only the second artist to posthumously represent the United States in the modern history of the Venice Biennale (Robert Smithson was chosen in 1982), Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1938-1996) had been previously nominated for the 45th Venice Biennale in 1995, and this exhibition expands upon and rearticulates his original proposal for the U.S. Pavilion. The volume brings together key examples of the artist's work in and around the U.S. Pavilion to create a coherent installation focused on Gonzalez-Torres's optimistic but critical relationship to his adoptive culture. With his paper stacks, take-away candy spills, light strings, beaded curtains, and public billboards the artist attempts to create a type of memorial that was anything but monumental, one that would surrender itself to the desires of its audience, one that would only intimate meaning, one that could, in time, vanish. The illustrated catalogue is accompanied by an introductory essay by Nancy Spector and a conversation among Amanda Cruz, Ann Goldstein, and Susanne Ghez, who collaboratively proposed Gonzalez-Torres for the Venice Biennale in 1995.".
