The Columbus Museum of Art’s collection includes an edition of David Wojnarowicz’s Untitled (One Day This Kid), 1990–91.
Columbus Museum curators write: “As David Wojnarowicz’s Untitled (One Day This Kid) reminds us, from the moment we are born, our society inculcates shameful feelings within each of us, brutally enforcing the conditions of acceptable behavior. The power in this work is that Wojnarowicz’s statement can so easily be applied to all kinds of prejudice and oppression today. This kid is all of us.”
The museum displayed this piece in Art after Stonewall, 1969–1989, which its curators described as “the first major exhibition to examine the impact on visual culture of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) liberation movement sparked fifty years ago with the Stonewall Uprising.”
