As you may know from our latest press release, we have decided to try another way of bringing back this censored art into -- or rather, close to -- the National Portrait Gallery.
We would like to set up the David Wojnarowicz Memorial Gallery for Censored Art on public property right outside the National Portrait Gallery so people coming to the museum will still have the choice to see all the art from the Hide/Seek exhibition and make up their own minds about it.
Maybe it'll be a big tent, maybe a trailer or an RV, who knows? We sure don't. We're just a web guy and an artist, so we need as much help as we can get. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you think you can help with any of this stuff:
- Legal: Getting the appropriate permits
- Structure: Anyone got a spare trailer lying around?
- Storage(?): If the structure is something that will have to be put up and taken down every day, we'll need a place to store it and the gallery's contents
- Power and Heat: It's dark and cold in DC in winter
- Equipment and Supplies: Something to play a video, a desk or booth for the person(s) staffing the gallery, information for visitors, a laptop with internet connection, etc.
- Website (maybe): A simple outpost on the web, unless another site wants to include the gallery's info
- Security: Suffice it to say, there are people out there who don't want the public to see this art
- Volunteers! People to run and staff the gallery. If a lot of people just put in a few hours each, we can keep this thing going till Feb. 13.
- Anything else?
