Samuel Anderson at DUJOUR spoke with Brian Paul Clamp about the exhibition at ClampArt “Screaming in the Streets: AIDS, Art, Activism”:
High highs and low lows defined New York City subculture in the 80s. While part of the decade was defined by the various forms of unchecked debauchery practiced by the scene’s artists, writers, and clubbers, those hard-partying patrons became a contingent of political and health activists once the AIDS crisis hit. That dichotomy is captured in a new exhibit at ClampArt entitled “Screaming in the Streets: AIDS, Art, and Activism” after a quote from the artist David Wojnarowicz.
