*DIGITAL* Culture Wars
October 7, 2020
Vermont Humanities Digital Channels
In the 1990s, artists such as David Wojnarowicz, Karen Finley, and Ron Athey served as lightning rods for outrage over the appropriateness of their receiving support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Photographer Dona Ann McAdams and curator John Killacky discuss the culture wars of this era and McAdams’ exhibition at the Helen Day Art Center, “Dona Ann McAdams: Performative Acts.”
McAdams’ extraordinarily compelling images of the raw fierceness and passion of these artists included in the exhibition will be featured.
