The artist Felix Gonzales-Torres is the subject of this monograph, published to coincide with a retrospective exhibition of his work organized by the Guggenheim Museum in New York. He is described as one of the most innovative and generous of contemporary artists - his stacks of printed paper and brilliantly-coloured candy are freely available for his audience to take, while his strings of light-bulbs and evocative photographs may be installed to any configuration the owners desire. Gonzalez-Torres invites viewers to project their own ideas, interpretations, or even their dreams onto his poetic work, leading to an artistic collaboration which extends beyond the walls of any gallery.
