I’m very excited to let you know that the Guggenheim Museum is now carrying the AIDS activist project book. The book is available in conjunction with the Robert Mapplethorpe Exhibition which opened yesterday. It’s really amazing to see the AIDS activist project joining ranks with the objects and books being offered to support the Mapplethorpe Exhibition.
It’s been 30 years since Mapplethorpe’s death. He died due to complications from AIDS in 1989, the same year I became fully aware of AIDS and began my 30 year journey that produced the AIDS activist project. (Read more about the AIDS activist project here.)
The Mapplethorpe Exhibition is entitled “Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now”, and will run in two parts. The first, January 25 – July 10, 2019, the second part opening on July 24th and running through January 5, 2020. More about the exhibition here.
Visit the Guggenheim at 5th Avenue and 89th Street and take n the exhibition then follow it up with a visit to the gift shop and pick up your copy of the AIDS activist project.
If I am there, I will be happy to sign your copy for you!
