David Wojnarowicz, still from "A Fire in My Belly," 1987
In case you hadn't noticed, the culture wars are back
. And in response to the censorship of David Wojnarowicz's 1987 film A Fire in My Belly
, recently (and very briefly) displayed at the National Portrait Gallery, PICA has organized a panel on issues surrounding the censorship of art. Panel luminaries include Kristan Kennedy (PICA visual arts curator), Stephanie Snyder (Cooley Gallery curator), Namita Wiggers (Museum of Contemporary Craft curator), Matthew Stadler (Publication Studio), Todd Tubutis (Blue Sky Gallery director), and many more.
