This large collection contains critically acclaimed documentaries and feature programming on some of the world’s fastest-growing countries, such as China, India, Russia, and Brazil, as well as major regions including Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and more.
  • Geriatrics Care Online provides information created to ensure that all health care professionals have the latest research on caring for older adults.
  • American Founding Era:  Rotunda’s Founding Era Collection is an integrated research environment that covers the correspondence of a number of key figures from America’s founding era.

Panel Discussion & Reception:
Tuesday, October 9th, 6:30-8:30 PM

Bobst Library, 3rd Floor, 70 Washington Square South

The summer of 2018 offered a slew of exhibitions, programs, new publications, and criticism surrounding the work of David Wojnarowicz. The Whitney Museum’s retrospective, History Keeps Me Awake at Night, was the epicenter of activities, with several concurrent exhibitions elsewhere, including PPOW Gallery’s Soon All This Will Be Picturesque Ruins: The Installations of David Wojnarowicz and NYU’s The Unflinching Eye: The Symbols of David Wojnarowicz.

To mark the closing of The Unflinching Eye, NYU’s Nicholas Martin welcomes Whitney curator David Kiehl, PPOW Co-founder Wendy Olsoff, and NYU Contributing Curator Hugh Ryan for a reflection on these disparate exhibitions, how they complement and contrast with one another, and how the events of this summer reflect and build upon Wojnarowicz’s legacy here in New York and the world over.

Panel discussion 6:30-8:00. Reception to follow.  R.S.V.P

The Unflinching Eye utilizes archival material to contextualize Wojnarowicz’s creative practice. Selected almost entirely from the David Wojnarowicz Papers, housed in NYU’s Fales Library, the exhibition seeks to analyze the images, ideas, and relationships that informed the artist’s work across media including painting, photography, installation, performance, and writing.
