Worldwide Exhibition of Felix Gonzalez-Torres' “Untitled” (Fortune Cookie Corner), 1990. 

 

Between May 25 and July 5, 2020, hundreds of people around the world are simultaneously exhibiting the piece “Untitled” (Fortune Cookie Corner), created by the late Cuban-American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres thirty years ago, at the height of the AIDS epidemic. In times of fear and despair, Gonzalez-Torres remained hopeful about the promise of human interconnection and intimacy. He conceived much of his work to engage us critically, as potential agents for change. As he once remarked, “without the public, these works are nothing.”

 

This multi-site exhibition is organized by Andrea Rosen Gallery, David Zwirner and the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation. Among those invited to exhibit Gonzalez-Torres' piece in their own spaces is Michel Otayek, an art historian and curator based in Berlin. Pictured here is Otayek's installation of Gonzalez-Torres' piece at his apartment in Berlin-Charlottenburg. Visits are possible by appointment. To request an appointment and learn more about the exhibition, including upcoming digital events, please (visit motayek.com/fortune.
