Hilton Als Lecture
Tuesday, June 7, 7pm

For a number of years now I've been working on a piece called "I Don't Remember." It concerns the bar scene in New York, and the language and ultimately death as a result of AIDS I found there. In the piece I also exam the work of the late great American author, Gary Fisher, whose examination of race, power, and queerness, remains as vital and shocking as it was over twenty years ago. All of the issues Gary raises in his writing we have tried to address in the second Artist's Institute show visually. Now comes a verbal reckoning.
