There has been an incredible article published in the Art Journal, X-Tra about the founding of CNN and the relationship between ACT UP, the art world and CNN’s history. We did extensive interviews with many of the artists who were part of the founding group and the process was completely eye opening and inspiring for me.
I think you will enjoy reading it.
There will be a discussion at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions Gallery in Hollywood on April 4. Folks will be invited to come to the exchange 1 block away at the Gay and Lesbian Center, if they’d like to see for themselves how, despite the odds, we’re still doing what we do 20 years later.
I would love to see you at this event if you happen to be in LA. It would be great to have your voice part of this discussion on Thursday night.
