This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Guaimaro, Cuba, Felix Gonzalez-Torres became a post-modernist installation artist of wide-ranging reputation, especially for his provocative installations of billboards and continuously replenished piles of paper and edible candies.

He graduated from Colegio San Jorge in 1976 and then studied art at Puerto Rico University where he earned a scholarship that took him to the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in 1981. He was also a student at the International Center for Photography as well as at New York University. In 1993, he participated in the Venice Biennale.

His first solo exhibition was in 1990 at the Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York, and he was much lauded at the 1991 Whitney Biennial. In 1995, a retrospective of his work was held at the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, and he died the following year from AIDS.

Work by Felix Gonzalez-Torres has been selected to represent the United States at the 2007 Venice Bienniale.  The exhibition will be curated by Nancy Spector of the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
