Don’t Mourn, Consecrate: A Long Table Discussion on Pandemics, Public Art, and History (In-person)
Oct 19, 2023 | 07:00 pm - 08:30 pm

Join NYU Special Collections, writer and organizer Theodore Kerr, and NYU's Grey Art Gallery for a discussion centering on the AIDS-related art installation "Don't Mourn, Consecrate" by artist Juan González (Born 1942, Cuba; Died 1993, New York City), who died of complications linked to AIDS. One of the first public artworks to engage with the AIDS crisis in the U.S., this installation filled the street-front windows of NYU's Grey Art Gallery from September to October 1987, predating the New Museum’s landmark exhibition "Let the Record Show" by two months.
