Between 1987 and 1990, Tony Greene (1955–1990) produced a small yet powerful body of work exploring desire, mortality, and the continued presence of the body in the face of the AIDS epidemic. This discussion explores Greene’s work, the politics of queer art production in Los Angeles during the late 1980s and early 1990s, and the stakes related to queer curatorial and artistic practices. Moderated by David Frantz, curator of Tony Greene: Amid Voluptuous Calm, with Monica Majoli, artist and curator; Lawrence Rinder, director, UC Berkeley Museum and Pacific Film Archive; Matias Viegener, artist and writer; and artist Millie Wilson.
