David Wojnarowicz Journals Are Up Online, Thanks to Fales Special Collections

By Harriet Staff


David Wojnarowicz scholars and fans rejoice: The artist's journals--archived at NYU's Fales Library & Special Collections--have just been digitized! Check out one of the tweeted photos of the many; and the full list of materials is here available to VIEW. We spied this poem, "Poem to Brian Sleeping":


GalleristNY writes that "[The journals] follow Wojnarowicz on his travels through Mexico, Europe and elsewhere (as well as include ephemera like a menu for a Chinese restaurant at 207 Second Avenue, which is now the home of Momofuku’s Ssäm Bar restaurant)." Very exciting. . . .
