The Museum of Modern Art

New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and MoMA PS1 have supported David Wojnarowicz by including his work in almost 20 exhibitions since 1993. 

The PS1 ClockTower Gallery included David as a fellow in two of its National and International Studio Program and Exhibition (1983-1984 and 1984-1985).  

MoMA holds more than a dozen of David’s works in their collection, including paintings, photographs, films, and works on paper. This includes the entire 1987 four-part series of “Earth” paintings, Fire, Earth, Water, and Wind (for Peter Hujar), of which MoMA curators write: “Wojnarowicz used Surrealist techniques, such as dramatic disparities of scale, with a combination of image and text to create contemporary statements that are both fantastical and disturbing.”
