On the occasion of Pride Month, we’re looking back at our own history of LGBTQ pride.
“David Wojnarowicz: A Fire in My Belly, A Work in Progress (1986-87)” (1999)
David Wojnarowicz is a widely respected artist whose first U.S. retrospective was held at the New Museum in 1999. The film, A Fire in My Belly, A Work in Progress (1986-87) is a poetic meditation on man, life, death, faith, and suffering made in part as a response to the AIDS-related death of his close friend, artist Peter Hujar.
“The New Museum has always defended freedom of expression and continues to oppose censorship. We cannot afford to take hard won civil liberties for granted and need to remain vigilant and protect artistic freedom,” said Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director.
Which of these characters from TWIABP lore are fictional and which are real?: Phillip, Brett, the landlord, Ethan, Gordon Paul, Lisa, Willie, Howard. Thanks!
Phillip is a former resident of our old house The Handsome Woman. He lives in Korea now. Very solid dude. He once said to me “I think I’m going out tonight, this blog rented a bowling alley for a chillwave show I’m gonna go to” and that sentence made me lose my mind.
Brett is another former resident of The Handsome Woman. He has celiac disease and can’t eat bread.
The landlord at the handsome woman was always pissed.
Ethan Grenier is the last free roaming oracle of the modern age. Never lived at The Handsome Woman but spent a lot of time there.
