Master Potter Juan Quezada was one of the leading figures in the revival of the Mata Ortiz ceramic style. His passion and devotion to both tradition and innovation was vital in cementing the style as the renowned contemporary art form it is today. Quezada’s Legacy will continue on through those who learned directly from him and emerging generations of potters.

The El Paso Museum of Art extends its deepest condolences to the Quezada family and Mata Ortiz community

Artist, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, born on November 26, 1957 in Guaimaro, Cuba untimely passed away on January 9, 1996, in Miami, Florida at age 38 due to complications from AIDS. He was known for his minimalist sculptures and installations usually made from everyday materials such as light bulbs, strings, and more notably hard candy.

Many of his works revolve around AIDS, q***r identity, and how AIDS affected his relationships.
In this installation photograph of Gonzalez-Torres’ work Untitled (L.A.), Refresh, was created in 1991 the same year that Gonzalez-Torres’ partner passed from AIDS. Viewers are encouraged to take a piece of candy thus making them part of the art as active participants. The candy is correspondent to the weight (50 lbs) of his partner at the time of death.
