Art History Speaker Series
Rizk, an associate professor of contemporary art history at The University of Toledo, will speak on her research into the art of David Wojnarowicz, an artist who died of AIDS in 1992. Wojnarowicz’s video, “A Fire in My Belly,” was recently censored from an exhibition on sexual difference at the National Portrait Gallery after allegations of offensive content by the Catholic League and Speaker of the House John Boehner.
