Artist donates archive of Felix Gonzalez-Torres letters, photographs, and exhibition cards to Visual AIDS


At a time when some artist foundations are making it difficult to access and view artists’ archives, Carl George, artist and close friend of Ross Laycock and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, has generously donated an archive of dozens of letters, photographs, and exhibition cards to Visual AIDS. The correspondences—a small selection of which is included in the above slideshow—presents an intimate view into the friendship of these three men by offering rare personal details that are not well-known in the current discourses surrounding Gonzalez-Torres’ work. Visual AIDS researcher Shawn Diamond discusses the archive at length with Carl George.
