History Keeps Me Awake at Night: A Genealogy of Wojnarowicz

Tomorrow night I'll be hitting up the small Chelsea gallery P.P.O.W for the a film screening and reading event that is part of the "History Keeps Me Awake at Night: A Genealogy of Wojnarowicz" show.

The gallery will be showing four of David Wojnarowicz films:
Fear of Disclosure, Fire in My Belly, Heroin, and Manhattan Love Suicides. There will also be readings by authors who credit Wojnarwicz and his work as influences. The readers are Zachary German, Amy King, Sara Marcus, and Max Steele.

This event, and ultimately this exhibition, should shed light on not just how prolific of an artist Wojnarowicz was, but also the incredible influence he and his work has had on a number of young queer artists.
