This collage by Wojnarowicz, consisting of a combination of images from other known works by the artist, was used in the 2017 re-release of his band 3 Teens Kill 4's album "No Motive." The re-released album, which was dedicated to Wojnarowicz, was used as a sound installation at the Whitney Museum's Wojnarowicz retrospective in 2018. The band's early members included Wojnarowicz, Brian Butterick, Jesse Hultberg, and Julie Hair.

Provenance: From the Estate of Brian Butterick.
