New in our webstore and super exciting! David Wojnarowicz: Tongues of Flame ($30.00)
Recently we had the pleasure of meeting Barry Blinderman from Illinois State University who organized the exhibition that this book was created for and we were very excited to learn that some new, uncirculated copies of this beautiful and important catalog were still available! Barry had great stories of working with Wojnarowicz on the show and hosting him at his house down in Normal, Illinois for over two months while David made work for the show. He recalled that David would make drawings with his son and because he never went to college, Wojnarowicz really enjoyed the experience of being at the school.
This book is packed with over 100 images in black and white and color and some great texts about and by Wojnarowicz. Every aspect of Wojnarowicz’s work is included: paintings, collages, photography, writing, film stills, performance stills, and more. A must - and an important addition to any library concerned with Queer culture, AIDS, activism, and the East Village Art Scene of the 1980s.
