Protesters to approach Clough over Wojnarowicz video removal
on Wednesday,January 19,2011 20:01
Those who criticized Smithsonian Institution secretary Wayne Clough for removing David Wojnarowicz's "A Fire in My Belly" are taking their anger to a new level by organizing a protest. Individuals are planning to greet Clough with signs, as he arrives at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California, for a speaking event.
The 13-minute video by David Wojnarowicz was removed from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. after receiving criticism from conservatives across the country, according to the Los Angeles Times. "A Fire in My Belly" depicts Jesus Christ on the crucifix, being swarmed by ants. Wojnarowicz created the piece as a response to the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.
Since the video was removed from the National Portrait Gallery, it has been relocated to the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Recently, two art enthusiasts opened their own Museum of Censored Art in a motorhome next to the Smithsonian institution to air the video to the public at their own discretion.
Clough's talk is titled, "New Perspectives at the Smithsonian." Although it has been sold out for months, outrage over the removal of the video is likely to come up at the discussion.
Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
