Cuban-born Felix Gonzalez-Torres first came to New York in 1979 as a student, and he continued to live in the US until his untimely death from AIDS in Miami in 1996. He became known for a poetic brand of Conceptual art-making that confronted themes of queerness and mourning in the era of the AIDS crisis.

Our digital exhibition “Crossing Borders,” presented as part of our #CitizensBorders initiative, showcases works from MoMA’s collection by artists who immigrated to the U.S., often as refugees in search of safe haven. Explore all the works at mo.ma/crossingborders.
A woman calmly looks out from a storm of activity in this detail from a new collage by Elliott Hundley at Andrea Rosen Gallery, suggesting that she is uniquely adapted to life in an environment of overload.
