Film critic Nick Davis on Claire Denis’ White Material: “formally electric, like the last visions of someone being burned alive”
"Experienced together, Horn’s Gold Field (1980–82) and the recent acquisition, Gonzalez-Torres’s “Untitled” (Golden), reflect on the artists’ respect for the evocative potential of minimal form and the symbolic valence of pure color. The fragile beauty of the works suspends commonplace meanings attached to gold as a source of wealth and extravagance, inviting instead a kind of poetic reverie on its materiality and symbolic resonance.”
