75 Reasons to Live: Rudolf Frieling on Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Rudolf Frieling is curator of media arts here at SFMOMA. He’s talking about Felix Gonzalez-Torres‘s Untitled (Golden) (1995). The gold curtain just begs for a dramatic entrance and exit: compare Stephen Hartman’s—very different—talk on the same piece, coming up later today. Thanks Rudolf!

  • The gold curtain is so pornographic. Like pornography, it is dramatic, looks cheap. There are enough strings of gold beads to make 39 skirts, I think. If you cut the strings of gold beads, you could make 1,957 skirts, maybe. That’s a lot of pornography. The Golden Gate Bridge has nice legs. Roni Horn looks sexy in short skirts.
