Mark Morrisroe: Neo Romantic Iconography and the Performance of Self

Symposium @ Artists Space (38 Greene St, 3rd Floor NY NY) Saturday 23 April 2011 at 7PM.  Participants will include artist Moyra Davey and curator and writer Fionn Meade.

The symposium will focus on the romantic and classical references which creep their way into Morrisroe’s portraits of friends, acquaintances and lovers. His work is an unglamorous and candid documentation of the queer subcultures of Boston and New York in the 1980s – a bygone era of sex, drugs and disease.
