F. Gonzales-Torres:
"The paper should be 75 lb. white offset by Georgia Pacific (or something similar if this cannot be found). The sheets should be 29 x 23 inches, and the ideal height of the stack should be maintained as closely as possible to 26 inches. The stacks should be 10 inches apart with the printed side on view; the bottom of the texts should face one another. The text should be Times New Roman Italic, printed in black and centered within the sheet of paper."

Gonzalez-Torres-Double-Portrait

Untitled (Double Portrait). 1991

Print.
Gold offset lithograph on paper.
69 x 99 cm.

Installed in the show in stakes, take away work, unlimited edition.


"Untitled" (Double Portrait) is from the artist’s “stack” series and is made up of hundreds of sheets of paper featuring an image of two circles printed in lustrous gold. They are presented in a neat pile on the museum floor, available for visitors to take away; infinite numbers of new copies may be printed. The image this work carries represents one of the most important themes found in Gonzalez-Torres’s work: the pairing of two people in togetherness, solidarity, and love. These “anti-monuments,” as the artist described his “stack” works, are meant to symbolize the acts of loss and regeneration. Gonzalez-Torres also desired to subvert the traditional “look but do not touch” rules often associated with viewing and experiencing works of art".
