Tainted Love offers a view of activist art that questions the idea that direct action is the only effective form of politics. The exhibition takes its inspiration from political activity surrounding cultural production within the moment of AIDS activism, although the works represented are not strictly tied to AIDS.

Tainted Love is presented by Visual AIDS, New York’s premier non-profit organization working between art and AIDS. Visual AIDS utilizes contemporary art to promote the message that “AIDS IS NOT OVER” through exhibitions, publications and events, and collaborations with artists, museums, schools, and activist organizations. We provide support for visual artists living with HIV and maintain a visual record of their contributions.

Directions
La Galleria is at 6 E 1st Street, New York City, between Bowery & 2nd Avenue, (212) 505-2476 F, V to Second Avenue

    I wnated to know if there was anyway I could recieve the 6 page poem by Luis Camnitzer that was featured in A&U Magazine it was a poem he wrote when he was on drow in Texas please email me with any information on recieving a copy of the poem

  2. Luis Camnitzer says:

    I was not on death row and it is not a poem, just a string of quotes taken from the last words of people executed in Texas and available on the web page of the Texas Justice Department. You can contact my gallery, Alexander Gray, but I don’t know if the will release the piece.
