Daniel González was born in Argentina in 1963; he lives and works in New York and Verona (Italy).

His work results from the research into celebration rites and cross-boundaries and it takes the form of public projects, sequined banner-painting and wearable one-off pieces exhibited in high-impact performances. González creates irrational and energetic worlds, areas of freedom in which existing conventions collapse.

In 2019 he presented #whatsupargentina Mi Casa Tu Casa, his major retrospective on ephemeral architecture at the MAR Museum of Mar Del Plata (Argentina) and created the ephemeral architecture “Mi Casa Tu Casa” as a collateral event of the biennial Manifesta 12 Palermo. In the same year he took part in the XXII International Exhibition of the Milan Triennial with “KayCasaMaisonHome” and was among the finalists of the public competition for site-specific works of the new Humboldt Forum in Berlin.

In 2017 he received the grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in New York.

He also exhibited at the Zabludowicz Collection in London, at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Monaco (DE), at the Barrio Museum (New York, 2011 biennial Latin contemporary art), in Viafarini (Milan) and Marsèlleria (Milan), at the Neuer Kunstverein in Aachen, at the second Prague Biennale and at Manifesta 7 Trento / Bolzano, in the galleries Studio La Città (Verona), Diana Lowenstein (Miami, USA), Valentina Bonomo (Rome), Boccanera Gallery ( Trento) and Spencer Brownstone (New York City) and in the MACO Mexico fair, Mexico City, in the Witte de With Festival festival in Rotterdam, in the Casa di Giulietta Museum (Verona), in the monumental complex Santo Spirito in Sassia (Rome) and in the The Chocolate Factory Foundation (Ticino, Switzerland). His works are included in several Italian and foreign private collections, including Zabludowicz Collection (London), Fondation pour arte contemporain Claudine et Jean-Marc Salomon (France), Tom Patchett (Los Angeles), Luciano Benetton (Venice) and Patrizia Pepe (Prato).

He participated in the first edition of Corpi sul palco in 2019.
