We are participating in a worldwide multi-sited exhibition of Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ “Untitled” (Fortune Cookie Corner), 1990. In concert with individuals and institutions, we’re sharing photos of this work installed in our space.
In ordinary days, visitors would be able to take a cookie for themselves, read their fortune, and contemplate Gonzalez-Torres’ work and the questions it raises: how has this moment shifted our perceptions of public space? What does this work mean if you cannot be physically near it to take a cookie? How can we make and experience art across physical and digital boundaries?
But for now, in the spirit of the work, if you leave a 🥠 in the comments of this post from now until July 5, 2020, when this exhibition ends, we will respond with a random fortune taken from the one of the cookies in our pile.
