In 1991, Dan Cameron curated The Savage Garden, at the Fundacion ‘la Caixa, Madrid. The exhibition explored ideas of landscape as metaphor, the gray area between abstraction and representation, and the desire to deny categorization between artistic mediums. Amongst the several artists included in the exhibition were David Ireland and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, both of them featured together in Box of Angels, a past exhibition at The David Ireland House. For his talk at 500 Capp Street, Cameron expands on this exhibition and other projects that have informed his curatorial practice.
