David Wojnarowicz emerged into the downtown art scene of late-1970s New York as one of the most prolific and prominent artists of the avant-garde. This book, begun in partnership with the artist before his death in 1992, and first published in 1994, engaged his “tribe” – artists, writers and friends like Kiki Smith and Nan Goldin – to offer an engaging and provocative portrait of his life and work. The book is republished by Aperture to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
