What Comes Next? Mark Morrisroe, David Wojnarowicz, Marc Lida, Andreas Senser, Bern Boyle, and contemporaries.
Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at 6:30

Since circa 1980, New York City has lost untold numbers of artists to AIDS.  Bern Boyle (1951-1992), Marc Lida (1957-1992), Mark Morrisroe (1959-1989),  Andreas Senser (1942-1989), and David Wojnarowicz (1954-1992) are among them. The popular discourse on HIV/AIDS remains unresolved. The stigma is still very much alive and, while pushed underground, HIV-phobia is resurfacing. Discussions surrounding the censorship of David Wojnarowicz's work by the National Portrait Gallery have drawn our history nearer in recent months.
Visual AIDS and the Fales Library present a symposium considering these artists' responses to living with, and dying from complications due to AIDS. What is the role of those that survive them: the witness, the archivist, the estate, the presenter? How does the foreknowledge of impending death affect the artist's oeuvre, in practice, and what are the conversations and relationships that need to occur to guide the artist's legacy forward?

The panelists:

Rafael Sanchez

Amy Scholder

Jonathan Weinberg

The Critical Topics in Food Series

For the past five years the Fales Library, NYU's Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, along with Clark Wolf of Clark Wolf Company, Inc. have planned a series of public, scholarly panels and events highlighting current topics in food. These highly popular programs, ranging from such topics as "water," to the ethics of gourmet dining, to the "Farm Bill," are viewable here.

They have become important pedagogical tools and are used in classrooms to stimulate discussions about food.
