    1. Fever The Art of David Wojnarowicz showcases haunting realities that we resist to look in the face of Dan Cameron, John Carlin, C Carr, and Mysoon Rizk beautifully yet bluntly paint a picture of David Wojnarowicz and his artwork for the audience, as if he is sitting chillingly behind you The first portion of the work s title includes fever, which is the first word that comes to my mind when trying to describe what the book inspires Wojnarowicz shed light, or in this case, dark, on fevers, specif [...]

    3. This book is chock full of a lot of art of David Wojnarowicz, including many pieces I ve never seen before They start with analysis of his pieces, sometimes taking a bit too long, but the biographical section was great, as well as the pieces Wojarnowicz wrote He was such a brilliant artist and it was so terrible that he died way too young An important voice in the early AIDS era.


    4. A really sad artist who died of AIDS, lived a very difficult childhood, and refused to separate the personal from the political Truly outsider art by a universal artist who worked in photography, performance, painting, and collage The homage to Rimbaud and works with humans beings wearing atlas skins are particularly haunting.


    5. This guy is fascinating, a writer and an artist, died of AIDS in the early 90 s His art is very emotional He really put his life pain into it, similar to Frida Kahlo in that way I m also interested in how, as a writer, he combined text with his images and did it successfully.
