MAD is one of several locations throughout New York City exhibiting the @aidsmemorialquilt during #PrideMonth2019. Created to commemorate the lives lost to the AIDS pandemic, the quilt has grown from a single panel made in 1987 to more than 49,000 individual panels. A living historical artifact and an ongoing work of community art, the Quilt continues to be exhibited globally. The magnificent 12x12 foot panel on display in MAD’s public lobby memorializes the Broadway community who worked backstage and in front of the footlights. #AIDSquilt#LGBTQ#NYCPride#WorldPride#loveislove

🔊Now on view, “Roger Brown: Virtual Still Lifes” brings renewed attention to one of Chicago’s most prominent queer artists of the postwar era. A painter of atmospheric depictions of architecture, landscapes, and stylized social dramas, Brown was also an avid collector and influential champion for art and material culture produced outside of the mainstream art world. Many of these objects became integral components of Brown’s canvasses and sculpture as the artist blurred the concrete and pictorial to elevate the tension between the real and the virtual. Brown died from complications of AIDS in 1997. In 2004, he was inducted posthumously into the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame. #RogerBrown#pride

Listen to an in-depth 📻 interview w/ Krivine, along w/ 2 hours of punk music. (music & interview begins at 3 min mark) http://bit.ly/MostlySingles #NYMM2019
