Daniel González, born in Argentina in 1963, currently lives and works in Berlin and New York.
His work results from researches into celebration rites and it takes the form of public projects, sequined banner-painting, and wearable one-off pieces which are shown in high-impact performances. González creates irrational, sexy, and energetic worlds: areas of freedom in which existing conventions collapse.
González is represented by Diana Lowenstein Gallery in Miami, Florida and Studio La Cittá gallery in Verona.
In 2013 the artist presents the public installation Romeo’s Balcony in collaboration with ArtVerona art fair, Musei Civici and Teatro Stabile di Verona and the wall installation Happiness Before Civilization at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich in occasion of the PIN. Auction Party.
In 2014 the artist has been invited to the design fair Ventura Lambrate during the Milan Design Week with the projects Criminal Aesthetic Fashion Soundsystem and Daniel González D.G. Clothes Project. In the same year, Noah Khoshbin, curator of Robert Wilson Watermill Center (Long Island, NY, USA) invites Daniel González to the Luminaria Festival in San Antonio, TX, USA, with the performance Bohemian Texas Street Home Fashion Show.
