More Life

We won’t die secret deaths anymore. The world only spins forward.
We will be citizens. The time has come.
Bye now.
You are fabulous creatures, each and every one.
And I bless you: More Life.
The Great Work Begins.

—Tony Kushner, Angels in America

 

David Zwirner is pleased to announce More Life, a focused series of curated solo exhibitions held at the gallery’s locations in New York and London this summer and fall, beginning on June 24.

 

In June 1981, the US Centers for Disease Control first reported what would eventually be known as AIDS.1 Marking the fortieth anniversary of the CDC’s report, acknowledged as the beginning of the HIV/AIDS crisis, this series of exhibitions will highlight a selection of artists whose lives were cut short by HIV/AIDS-related complications during approximately the first twenty years of the epidemic.

 

This series explores the affective, aesthetic, personal, and political responses to the crisis through the lens of the gay male perspective—from artists who were part of communities that were disproportionately affected by the virus, although certainly not the only demographic to experience its devastation.
