Art AIDS America co-curator JONATHAN DAVID KATZ discusses ART AIDS AMERICA CHICAGO which is opening December 1, 2016 at the newly renovated Alphawood Gallery. Visit artaidsamericachicago.org for more information.
Mr. Katz works at the intersection of art history and queer history, one of the busiest intersections in American culture, and yet one of the least studied. A specialist in the arts of the Cold War era, he is centrally concerned with the question of why the American avant-garde came to be dominated and defined by queer artists during what was perhaps the single most homophobic decade in this nation’s history.
