David Wojnarowicz wore this jacket in 1988, just 4 years before he’d ultimately die from AIDS. Sadly, just a few years ago some of his artistic work was censored at the Smithsonian. People in power are still content to try and erase his history and the continued struggles of people with AIDS
everyone everywhere please please please reblog this important artist.
My contribution to the ‘Bound Requiem’ show, curated by Michael Mararian at Last Rites gallery in NYC. The show runs Dec 14th- Jan 18th and boasts an amazingly talented artist lineup- all re-purposing old books. My piece is on a 2nd edition copy of ‘The Home Potter’ from 1976. Contact the gallery for purchase inquires.
