Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Relationship Politics

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) Barcelona hosts a large-scale exhibition for the first time "Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Relationship Politics".

The exhibition consists of four rooms dedicated to separate groups of problems, reflections on which can be found in the artist's works. The first room contains a selection of works on the ideas of politics, authority, judgment and memory. The second room examines the ideas of connection, contact, doubling and identity, balance, love and dialogue between change and eternity in the artist's works. The third hall of the exhibition is organized around some of the more existentially oriented and emotional works. The last hall within the framework of the exhibition explores and combines the ideas of patriotism, militarism, machismo and sensual desire.

Felix Gonzales-Torres (American, born in Cuba, 1957 - died in Miami in 1996 due to complications caused by AIDS) in his work (minimalism, conceptualism, expressionism) touches upon numerous contemporary issues related to memory, power, freedom and national identity. The last hall within the framework of the exhibition explores and combines the ideas of patriotism, militarism, machismo and sensuality.
