Arts/culture critic Cynthia Carr and scholar Jennifer Doyle examine the work of the artist David Wojnarowicz from historical, literary, and queer perspectives. Carr is the author of Fire in the Belly: The Life and Times of David Wojnarowicz; Doyle is the author of Hold It Against Me: Difficulty and Emotion in Contemporary Art. A rare, full-length screening of ITSOFOMO (In the Shadow of Forward Motion), Wojnarowicz’s collaboration with composer Ben Neill, will follow the discussion.
