Gonzales-Torres’ “Untitled” Fortune Cookie Corner – Exhibition at Hudson Hall

Screen Shot 2020-06-23 at 7.24.05 PM

 

Hudson Hall is one of several hundred places around the world featuring a live, global installation of Untitled (Fortune Cookie Corner) by the famed artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1957-1996). The work has been lent by an anonymous private collector and coincides with Hudson Hall’s reopening to the public.

Exhibition curator Andrea Rosen, the New York gallerist, invited 1,000 individuals around the world to manifest the Gonzalez-Torres work in a place of their choosing as part of one total site. Lawyer and part-time Germantown resident John Sare was one of the 1,000 individuals selected to manifest the work, and he selected Hudson Hall for the installation. Created in 1990, the installation is described as “Fortune cookies, endless supply,” with the dimensions of each installation dependant on each site. The core tenets of the work include the principle that individuals must be permitted to choose to take fortune cookies from the work. Although the original supply of approximately 800 fortune cookies will not be replenished, the work will remain in place through July 5 even if the supply of fortune cookies is exhausted.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres was born in Guáimaro, Cuba on November 26, 1957. He referred to himself as American. He lived and worked in New York City between 1979 and 1995. Gonzalez-Torres died in Miami on January 6, 1996 from AIDS-related causes.
