FELIX GONZALEZ-TORRES "SNOOPY AND BAMM-BAMM" 1994
Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1957-1996) is widely known for his quiet yet striking sculptures and installations.
Cuban-born and openly gay, Torres' involvement in cultural and political issues influenced his thematic exploration of the relationship between the public and private areas of life today.
Included in the Printed Matter Photography Portfolio I alongside artists such as Nan Goldin, Sophie Calle, and Lorna Simpson, this untitled work features a sweet portrait of Snoopy and Bamm-Bamm figurines nestled and cuddling under a duvet.
Gonzalez-Torres has been exhibited across the world in some of the most prestigious venues: the Whitney Biennial (1991), the Sydney Biennial (1996), and the Venice Biennial (1993). Retrospectives of his work have been held at the Guggenheim and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. His public work has also been hosted in Brussels, Seoul, Hannover, and Frankfurt to name a few.
