David Wojnarowicz, Poster, Hal Bromm Gallery, 1983
David Wojnarowicz exhibition at Hal Bromm Gallery, November 19 – December 23, 1983. Poster, 12 x 16 inches. Originally folded and has some creasing.
This poster shows a sailor and a riverboat with text beginning with the words “What it is is the appearance of a portrait, not the immediate vision I love so much: that of the dragqueen in the dive waterfront coffeeshop turning towards a stranger and giving a coy seductive smile which reveals a mouth of rotted teeth…” For this exhibition Wojnarowicz carted in piles of sand to suggest a beach or waterfront scene as a setting for several of his painted driftwood totems.
