Beau: Wojnarowicz and His Journals



If you click over to Band of Thebes you will be able to visit Triple Canopy, an online arts journal whose current issue features selections of David Wojnarowicz's 30+ journals being digitised by NYU's Fales Library.

Wojnarowicz was a painter, photographer, writer, filmmaker, performance artist, and activist who was prominent in the New York City art world of the 1980s. He died of AIDS-related complications in 1992, age 37.

This is a lot like Mark Morrisroe's work. Much of his photography and poetry were published posthumously. I purchased the book Mark Morrisroe (1999), edited by Jack Woody, and it's fantastic. You can learn more by reading this:
