A Fire in Our Belly: Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Tuesday February 1st, 7-9pm

721 Broadway, 6th Floor, Room 612 With Marvin Taylor, Thomas Crow, Karen Finley and Leon Hilton

Artist David Wojnarowicz’s archives are housed at Fales Library and Special Collections on the third floor of Bobst Library at NYU, and the film ‘A Fire in My Belly,’ an edited version of which the National Portrait Gallery removed from its exhibition ‘Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,’ was on loan from Fales.

This event brings together members of the NYU community to address the myriad and ongoing issues raised by the censoring of this important work.
