Literary Nonfiction. Art. LGBTQIA Studies. HIV/AIDS. David Wojnarowicz is one of the most important artists emerging from the New York art world of the 1980's. While his work spanned less than 20 years--his life was cut short due to AIDS at the age of 37--he created a large body of work in collage, painting, performance, sculpture, writing and video. The exhibition at Iceberg Projects in 2018, David Wojnarowicz: Flesh of My Flesh, is the first solo show of the artist in Chicago, focusing on corporeal themes and motifs that he used throughout his career. The book is richly illustrated and documents the exhibition at Iceberg Projects, the film program at the Block Museum at Northwestern University, and the transcipt of Dr. Daniel S. Berger and Barry Blinderman in conversation. It also includes essays of Dr. Berger, Elijah Burgher, and Wendy Olsoff.
