Daniel González was born in Argentina in 1963; he 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.

His work has been shown in Viafarini, Milan; the Neuer Kunstverein, Aachen; and the second Prague Biennale. In 2008 Daniel González realized a workshop performance for Manifesta 7 for which he created portrait-fashions by transforming the clothes of the visitors after interviewing them for a minute.
In 2010 he took part in the Witte de With festival, Rotterdam, where he presented his first Pop-up Building: he covered a historical church in cut-out cardboard like a gigantic pop-up book.
In 2011 he participated in the biennale of the Museo del Barrio in New York for which he created Pop-up Museo Disco Club, a sculpture-installation that transformed the museum's 5th Avenue facade and its lobby into a block party lasting six months.
Since 2007 Daniel González has collaborated with Anna Galtarossa on large-scale public projects. The first, Chili Moon Town Tour, a floating utopian city, inaugurated the Bosque de Chapultepec in Mexico City in 2007. The second, Homeless Rocket with Chandeliers, created in Lambrate, Milan, was an installation centred on a crane in use on a building site and contaminated by objects and materials referring to street culture and to the freedom it transmits. The artist exhibited at Zabludowicz Collection, London, the Musée d'Art Contemporain, Bordeaux, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich.
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.
In 2015 the D.G. Clothes Project presents the performance Aaaaaaahhh Anthology of a Liar, designed for Marsèll showroom in the exhibition space Marsèlleria, Milan, followed by Cheaper Fast Love, performance for the design fair Ventura Lambrate in Milian. The artist will be also featuring in Rome with the performance of D.G. Clothes Project, Portrait Fashion Factory, hosted in the Monumental Space Santo Spirito in Sassia, for the art programme Spirito Due, curated by Valentina Ciarallo on May 14th. It will be immediately followed by the solo show Super Reality at Valentina Bonomo Gallery from May 19th to September 18th, 2015

The artist is represented by Diana Lowenstein Gallery (Miami) and Studio La Cittá gallery (Verona).

Daniel González è nato in Argentina nel 1963, vive e lavora tra Berlino e New York.
Il suo lavoro nasce da una ricerca sul rito della celebrazione e si declina in progetti pubblici, banner-painting di paillettes e pezzi unici indossabili presentati in performance ad alto impatto. González crea mondi deliranti, sexy e pieni di energia: spazi di libertà dove le convenzioni esistenti collassano.

Ha esposto a Viafarini (Milano), al Neuer Kunstverein di Aachen ed alla seconda Biennale di Praga. Nel 2008 Daniel González ha realizzato un workshop performance per Manifesta 7 con il progetto di arte applicata alla moda D.G. Clothes project.
Nel 2010 ha partecipato al Witte de Withstraat festival di Rotterdam, dove ha presentato la sua prima opera pop-up, coprendo una chiesa storica con cartone intagliato, come un libro pop-up gigante.
Nel 2011 ha partecipato alla Biennale del Museo del Barrio a New York creando Pop-up Museo Disco Club, scultura-installazione che trasformava la facciata del museo sulla 5th Avenue e l’atrio in un block party di sei mesi di durata.
Dal 2007 Daniel González collabora con Anna Galtarossa per progetti pubblici su larga scala. Il primo, Chili Moon Town Tour, una città utopica galleggiante, ha inaugurato nel Bosque de Chapultepec a Città del Messico nel 2007.
Il secondo, Homeless Rocket with Chandeliers, prodotto a Lambrate (Milano), è una gru-installazione usata in un cantiere, contaminata da oggetti e materiali che si riferiscono alla cultura di strada e alla libertà che essa trasmette. Insieme hanno esposto in numerosi musei e collezioni internazionali come la Zabludowicz Collection di Londra e il Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux.
Nel 2013 presenta a Verona l’installazione pubblica Romeo’s Balcony in collaborazione con ArtVerona, i Musei Civici e il Teatro Stabile di Verona e l’installazione Happiness Before Civilization alla Pinakothek der Moderne di Monaco in occasione del PIN. Auction Party. Espone inoltre a Miami alla Diana Lowenstein Gallery con il progetto Criminal Aesthetic Fashion at the Skyscraper Club in collaborazione con l’artista Anna Galtarossa.
Nel 2014 è invitato a Ventura Lambrate durante la Milan Design Week con i progetti Criminal Aesthetic Fashion Soundsystem e il Daniel González D.G. Clothes Project. Nello stesso anno, Noah Khoshbin, curatore del Robert Wilson Watermill Center (Long Island, NY, USA) invita l’artista al Luminaria Festival in San Antonio, TX, USA, con la performance Bohemian Texas Street Home Fashion Show.
Il 2015 inizia con la performance del D.G. Clothes Project dal titolo Aaaaaaahhh Antologia di un Bugiardo, pensata per Marsèll nello spazio Marsèlleria Permanent Exhibition di Milano, Cheaper Fast Love, performance per la fiera di design Ventura Lambrate a Miliano e Portrait Fashion Factory per Spirito Due a cura di Valentina Ciarallo, nel Complesso Monumentale Santo Spirito in Sassia, Roma. A seguire verrà inaugurata il 19 maggio la personale Super Reality alla Galleria Valentina Bonomo (Roma) visitabile fino al 18 settembre 2015.
