Felix Gonzalez-Torres

  • 30 October 2015 — 24 January 2016 *on now

This winter, seminal work by Cuban-born American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres fills all three of the MAC’s galleries whilst also spilling out beyond the building into the city, becoming entwined with the urban landscape of Belfast.

Curated by Eoin Dara, Felix Gonzalez-Torres: This Place will be the largest presentation of the artist’s work in Ireland to date. The exhibition, which will include a nuanced selection of works made by the artist between 1987 and 1994, will seek to explore the rich contextual pluralities inherent in Gonzalez-Torres’s work in relation to contemporary culture in Northern Ireland, considering dichotomies between solidity and fluidity, proximity and distance, unity and disarray, harmony and discord.

Suitable for

  • Any age
