Description:

David Wojnarowicz is arguably one of the most important artists to emerge from the New York art world of the 1980s. While his work spanned less than twenty years-his life was cut short due to AIDS at the age of 37-from 1979 to 1992 he created a large body of work in collage, paintings, performances, sculpture, writing, and video. A series of short works investigates Wojnarowicz’ aesthetics, iconography and individualized, critical response to the political conditions of his time.

This screening is presented in partnership with Iceberg Projects in conjunction with their exhibition David Wojnarowicz: Flesh of My Flesh (June 23 – August 4, 2018)
