More on the Americas North by South


Post from Tamara Kostianovsky

[Editor’s note: Kostianovsky is one of the artists in The Americas–see post]

The pillow piece “Ah…Felix” by artist Marisa Telleria-Diez (Nicaragua)(image left) pays homage to artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres (image right) and references his untitled photograph of two pillows that was displayed on billboards in NYC in the early ’90s.

I was looking for more info on the original piece by Gonzalez-Torres to include in this email and I came across a website that analyzes it very smartly.
