      DAVID WOJNAROWICZ (1954-1992)

      Rimbaud in New York.

      Photocopy announcement on paper. 4 1/2x6 1/2 inches, 12x16.5 cm; full margins. Signed, dedicated and annotated in felt-tip pen and ink, verso. 1977-79.

      Estimate $1,500 - 2,500

      The message on the verso of this piece is to "Jim" [Fouratt], regarding Wojnarowicz's desire to get a job at Danceteria. The image is from his series of pictures taken throughout New York, entitled Rimbaud in New York, which was comprised of 24 black-and-white images, experimenting with the juxtaposition of history by placing the poet Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) in contemporary New York scenes.
