This career-spanning retrospective of artist, activist and writer, David Wojnarowicz features more than 100 works. From the early experimental collages and photographs from the 1970s to his later paintings, the exhibition charts not only Wojnarowicz’s growing impact as an artist but also as a passionate AIDS campaigner. An excerpt of footage shot by fellow activist and filmmaker, Phil Zwickler, showing Wojnarowicz preparing to talk to the press following the NEA controversy will also be on display as well as a gallery devoted to a recording of the artist reading his own writings at The Drawing Center in Soho in 1992. Find out more about the David Wojnarowicz exhibition from the Whitney Museum of American Art’s website.
