Project 34: Felix Gonzalez-Torres:May 16-June 30 1992
Last night I was reading Nancy Spector's amazingly lucid book on the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

I did not know, for instance about the heavy relevance the collective Group Material bore regarding the artist's career. Here is an excerpt of what Spector had to say which totally reinvigorated me this morning.
