As ArtInfo put it: “In response to the Smithsonian’s disgraceful act of censorship, a remarkable array of museums, galleries, and artists have come together to decry the suppression of the work.”

Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture
October 30, 2010 – February 13, 2011
at the National Portrait Gallery,
a Division of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC

This is a major ground-breaking exhibition, one of the first to bring artistic expressions of sexual difference to wide public view. It included a response to the injustices suffered by people with AIDS: A Fire In My Belly (1986-1987), a video by David Wojnarowicz.
Responding to attacks by the Catholic League and threats of future funding cuts from U.S. Representatives, Smithsonian Secretary, G. Wayne Clough, ordered the video’s removal!
