17/08/2024 00:00 17/08/2024 23:45 America/New_York A Conversation with Tom Burr on Felix Gonzalez-Torres Event details Saturday, August 17, 20242 pm  Dia Beacon3 Beekman StreetBeacon, New York Free with museum admission. Artist Tom Burr reflects on Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s “Untitled” (Loverboy) (1989), on view at Dia Beacon. In conversation with Dia curator Jordan Carter and deputy director of program Humberto Moro, the two artists’ aesthetic, political, and social intersections will be charted. The program takes place in the Felix Gonzalez-Torres galleries at Dia Beacon. Tom Burr is an artist working with sculptural and collage-based forms, photography, and writing. Emerging out of legacies of Minimalism, Conceptual art, feminist art, and institutional critique, Burr’s work has reflected this history alongside his own biography to consider notions of subjectivity and place, desire and states of control, as well as shifting queer conditions. In New York, after attending the School of Visual Arts and the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program, Burr joined the gallery American Fine Arts, Co., where his exhibitions during the 1990s and early 2000s helped ignite a dialogue around expanded ideas of site-specificity, form, queer subjectivities, and current political forces. Burr has exhibited extensively, with solo presentations held at FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims, France; Kunstmuseum Basel, Gegenwart; Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne, Switzerland; SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah; Secession, Vienna; Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; among others. His work has been included in international survey exhibitions such as the Skulptur Projekte Münster in Germany, Istanbul Biennial, and Whitney Biennial in New York. Tom Burr, Anthology: Writings 1991–2015 was published in 2015 and a publication dedicated to the artist’s Torrington Project (2021– ) will be published in 2025. Burr lives in Connecticut and New York. Dia Beacon TURE DD/MM/YYYY A Conversation with Tom Burr on Felix Gonzalez-Torres

After graduating in 1961 with a degree in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara, he studied art at Yale University, New Haven, until 1964, where he took classes with his future collaborator Josef Albers, among others. Serra spent two years traveling in Europe before settling in 1966 in New York, where he began to show his work in museums and galleries in 1967. From that point on, he exhibited extensively throughout the world, including representation in the 1972, 1977, 1982, and 1987 Documenta exhibitions in Kassel, West Germany; the 1980, 1984, 2001, and 2013 Venice Biennales; and multiple editions of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Annual and Biennial exhibitions in New York. Retrospectives of Serra’s work have been organized by the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1986 and 2007), and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1998). He has also created numerous site-specific sculptures in public and private venues in both North America and Europe. In 1997, Serra’s first Torqued Ellipses sculptures were presented at Dia Center for the Arts, New York, and have been on permanent view at Dia Beacon since 2003 along with select works spanning his career. Serra died in Orient, New York, in 2024. Dia Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=DAILY; Richard Serra: A Film and Video Exhibition
