Light Work announces emergency screening
ArtRage and Light Work will host an emergency screening of David Wojnarowicz’s video “A Fire in My Belly,” which was recently censored from the exhibition “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture” at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Following a screening of the 13-minute video, art historian and critic Nancy Keefe Rhodes and Jeffrey Hoone, CMAC executive director, will be in conversation about the work, its censorship, and possible long-term implications for arts institutions.
Organized as a public response to a challenge on artistic and institutional autonomy, this event seeks to reinstate a dialog that congressional and religious conservatives have attempted to stifle. ArtRage and Light Work join New York gallery PPOW and a host of other arts institutions around the country in a series of screenings that protest this censorship.
