David Wojnarowicz was born on this day in 1954. Untitled (One day this kid …) includes a grainy image of the artist as a child, set within a text he wrote that outlines what he saw the future holding for a queer person. The Whitney will mount the first major, monographic presentation of the artist’s work in over a decade in summer 2018. Explore his work in the Whitney’s collection.
