Hugh Ryan and Matthew Leifheit on the unknown world in David Wojnarowicz's "Magic Box"

Hugh Ryan is the founder of the Pop-up Museum of Queer History, and Matthew Leifheit is a photo editor at VICE magazine and founder of MATTE photography magazine.. They will present their fascinating study on one of our favorite and most significant artists: David Wojnarowicz. After he died, his friends found “Magic Box” under his bed. The “Magic Box” is a collection of unexplained objects, a private world that Mr. Wojnarowicz didn’t share, even with his friends. The box and its contents are currently in the holdings of NYU's Fales Library, but we’ll review them on April 14th.
