The Unflinching Eye:
The Symbols of David Wojnarowicz
Mamdouha Bobst Gallery | July 12th – October 11, 2018 (Extended)
Free and open daily to the public until 11 pm
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.
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 12, 2018, 6PM-8PM
NYU is grateful to the Keith Haring Foundation for its support of The Unflinching Eye.

A New Center for Special Collections
Over the next two years, floors 2 and 3 of Bobst Library will be renovated to create a new center for Special Collections. The new space will include a Special Collections reading room, classrooms, and galleries. A redefined North Reading Room for students and researchers will double as event space. Renovation work on floor 3 will take place in 2019-2020.
Marvin Taylor, Director of Fales Library & Special Collections, had this to say:
I’m happy to announce that over 600 videos from the Gay Cable Network, the longest running LGBTQ cable network, are now streaming via a finding aid from the Fales Library web page.
This collection is the most important documentation of LGBTQ activism, culture, entertainment, and history in existence. GCN operated from from 1982-2001. Especially important is their coverage of the AIDS pandemic. They were the first news show to talk about the disease.
I’d like to thanks Brent Phillips, Carol Kassel and all the other Fales and DLTS staff who helped make this material available.
