Drawing on cultural studies, philosophy and psychoanalysis, Gregg Bordowitz presents an in-depth exposition of Glenn Ligon’s Untitled (I am a Man) (1988) as it is both inspired by and departs from the labour movements it remembers.
We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday 29 May at Tate Modern, London, Gregg Bordowitz will be launching his latest One Work book that focuses on Glenn Ligon’s iconic Untitled (I Am a Man) (1988).
In the mid-1980s, General Idea launched Imagevirus, a series of paintings, posters, exhibitions and ephemera that investigated AIDS as both word and image. Gregg Bordowitz here analyses Imagevirus from the perspective of his own involvement with activist art initiatives in New York during the 1980s and 90s.
To celebrate the launch of General Idea: Imagevirus, a new book by Gregg Bordowitz for Afterall Books' One Work series, Artists Space is hosting a discussion between Bordowitz and General Idea member AA Bronson.
