Terry and I went by Stanford’s Cantor Museum to see the student-curated, 50-piece show. One of the most memorable works, new to me but she had seen before, was by Felix Gonzalez- Torres (1957-1995), “Untitled (Portrait of Ross in L.A”(1991 — on loan from the Art Institute of Chicago, promised gift of the Stones). You are invited to take a piece of candy from the colorful pile that started at 175 pounds. I’m tempted to check back and see how the piece is progressing.
The show also includes work by Kara Walker and Glen Ligon. I wrote about this previously, comparing some of my concert posters to a “wanted” poster that referenced Angela Davis. (not to be confused with Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance). Nine posts back.
Here is the updated photo, from late February (I would estimate the piece is down to about 100 pounds):
