Deriving the show title from the Felix Gonzalez Torres conceptual candy pile work, “Untitled” (Portrait of Dad). Truly a catalyst for the exhibition, Gonzalez-Torres’s minimalist approach and profound ability of dealing with loss, personal/communal memory, and participation certainly provoked many of the works in the exhibition. Shpungin takes great reverence with Gonzalez-Torres and sees the exhibition as her small tribute to the enormity of his life and work.
