Artist Rafael Sanchez was selected to present a talk on Untitled by Mark Morrisroe (1959-1989) at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.
From Visual AIDS:
Rafael Sánchez and Mark Morrisroe met as neighbors moving into the same building in Jersey City in 1985 when Morrisroe arrived in the NY area from Boston. They helped each other as young artists and confidants. Sánchez became a caregiver to Morrisroe in his last years; the complex nature of that experience is poetically chronicled in Sánchez’s essay “Panorama With Hood Ornament” in the influential Boston School exhibition catalogue (ICA, Boston, 1995). Sánchez discussed his personal recollections of Morrisroe, Morrisroe’s artistic process, and the Whitney Museum’s Morrisroe work “Untitled.”
