The Sea Wall facilitates a conversation between the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Haegue Yang. Their practices’ talk of human relationships through the formation of abstract artworks, reflecting on such notions as, intimacy and activism, private and public, as well as place and people. Together, the works of these artists from different generations balance poetics and politics; they are emotionally charged, often through emphasizing the material qualities of domestic objects.
