- ALREADY HAPPENED:
Gail Thacker Fugitive Moments Catalogue Launch
February 3 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Howl! Happening invites you to celebrate the publication of the catalogue for Fugitive Moments with contributions by arts writer Jane Ursula Harris, Whitney Museum assistant curator Kelly Long, performance artist Rafael Sanchez and Carlo McCormick.
The mythology of Gail Thacker, the artist, begins with death, and it begins with a gift. The death was that of Mark Morrisroe, the photographer whose frenetic production was cut short when he succumbed to AIDS in 1989, at the age of thirty. The gift was also his: a box of Polaroid 665 Positive/Negative film.
– Kelly Long, Curatorial Assistant, Whitney Museum of American Art
