Uncaptioned image.

We are proud to present new fashion editorials as a response to the work of artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

The issue is comprised of four separate and bound editorials and The Silver Post newspaper, which can be found enclosed in an envelope. Each editorial responds to a specific artwork or body of work by Gonzalez-Torres, addressing manifold topics such as capitalism and democracy, isolation and togetherness, loss and renewal, and the celebration of life in response to difficult realities.

While Gonzalez-Torres referred to himself as American, he was born in Guaimaro, Cuba, in 1957 and raised in Puerto Rico. He moved to New York in 1979 and died of AIDS-related causes in 1996. Felix Gonzalez-Torres employed simple, everyday materials and a reduced aesthetic vocabulary reminiscent of both Minimalism and Conceptual Art to address themes such as love and loss, sickness and rejuvenation, gender and sexuality.
