Contemporary Art Hates You

A blog dedicated to any and all contemporary art. I try to post historically significant artists, but will occasionally post new artists that I like. As an art historian, I find that most people dismiss contemporary art because they don't understand it so I will include some information for the pieces which I have studied. Click on artists' names for a biography and feel free to suggest or submit your favorite artist/work.

Welcome. Enjoy.
Felix Gonzalez-Torres, 1994
Untitled

Felix Gonzales-Torres was a Cuban born artist whose work focused on ideas of death and decay. After the death of his partner, Gonzales-Torres began creating installation works that encouraged the audience to take away from it. In this particular exhibit, the artist hung strings of lights, letting the light bulbs flicker and die without replacement. The decay of light represents the fragility of life.
