Douglas Crimp was the curator of the landmark Pictures exhibition at Artists Space in 1977. He has published numerous books, including Melancholia and Moralism: Essays on AIDS and Queer Politics (MIT Press, 2002). Before Pictures recalls the first ten years Crimp spent in New York City, from 1967 to 1977. In Crimp’s words: “Through the book, I weave together stories of the two cultures that were most important in my life at the time—gay liberation and the art that came to be called post-modernist.”Buy tickets/get more info now
