David Wojnarowicz: “History Keeps Me Awake at Night”
July 13, 2018 - September 30, 2018
Whitney Museum of American Art, 99 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014


The most comprehensive survey thus far of the American artist and activist’s oeuvre, this retrospective arrays more than 100 of Wojnarowicz’s visual and literary works. Put together, his early collage experiments, studio paintings, essays, film, and photographs—including his seminal “Rimbaud in New York” series from 1978—illustrate how he fused the personal and political, while celebrating the spirit and idiosyncrasies of outsider cultures.
