1st Edition, 1998
The New Museum, Rizzoli
Fever: The Art of David Wojnarowicz, an exhibition catalogue published alongside the American artist’s major exhibition at the New Museum in New York. Wojnarowicz, who had lived on the streets of New York since he was 13, drew from his experiences on the margins of American society to recreate a world of outsiders-hustlers and hobos, club kids and rednecks. After he was diagnosed with AIDS in the late 1980s, his art took on a sharply political edge, and from then until his death in 1992, he became entangled in public debates about medical research and funding, censorship in the arts, and politically sanctioned homophobia. Exploring the extraordinary breadth of his work in film, installation, sculpture, photography, performance, and writing, Fever: The Art of David Wojnarowicz features essays by the artist’s biographer Cynthia Carr, New Museum senior curator Dan Cameron, and John Carlin, along with excerpts from the artists own writings, with works that spanned memoir and fiction to political commentary and cultural critique.
