Films and Videos by David Wojnarowicz and Collaborators

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.

Following the screening, exhibition curator Dr. Daniel S. Berger will be in conversation with Barry Blinderman, retired director of University Galleries at ISU in Normal, IL. The discussion will focus on Blinderman's experience working with the artist and organizing the historic first museum survey, David Wojnarowicz: Tongues of Flame, in 1990

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)
