'he Becoming of a Work of Art: Felix Gonzalez-Torres and

Miwon Kwon is author of "One Place After Another: Site
Specific Art and Locational Identity." Informed by urban
theory, postmodernist criticism and debates concerning
identity politics and the public sphere, Kwon addresses
the siting of art as more than an artistic problem, but
one concerned with today's unstable relationships
between location, identity and community. Presented
in conjunction with the exhibition International
Contemporary Art from the Harn Museum Collection.
