Tony Feher (1956-2016) was known for his use of common household and everyday objects usually overlooked and generally discarded. His careful consideration transformed and re-contextualized these items into unique works of art. For Artpace, the Hudson (Show)Room served as the backdrop for a site-determined installation where the space, volume, and light became his primary motivations. Through a reductive use of materials, he maximized the viewer experience.
Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1956, Feher was raised from age 10 in Corpus Christi, Texas. He studied at the University of Texas in Austin and lived in New York City. He exhibited extensively in the United States and internationally. His work can be found in the collections of many notable institutions, including the Art Institute of Chicago; the Baltimore Museum of Art; Dallas Museum of Art; La Coléccion Jumex, Mexico City; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York City; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
