“CONTINUUM: NEW WORKS
BY DANIEL JOSHUA GOLDSTEIN”
Gallery 443 PAS, New York, NY
October 11 – November 11, 2011
These pieces encompass a wide range of materials and forms including ethereal suspended sculptures in blue glass, crystal and bronze mesh; a kinetic wall-frieze comprised of multiple rotating panels in subtle gradations representing an expanse of sea fog; and large-scale minimalist, digital collages that draw their inspiration from French symbolist Odilon Redon.
Goldstein is a well-known AIDS activist and related works in the show include a triptych of photographs of his syringe sculpture “Invisible Man” and a study from his “Icarian Series” made of the worn-down leather skins of exercise equipment from a gym frequented by gay men before and during the AIDS epidemic. Goldstein is featured in the recently released award-winning and Sundance honored documentary “We Were Here” now playing nation-wide.
“A THIN LINE”
The late artist/activist/writer David Wojnarowicz wrote “…there’s a thin line between the inside and the outside, a thin line between thought and action and that line is simply made up of blood and muscle and bone…” The works in this show are historical reminders of the American experience of this thin line in the early years of AIDS.
“QUEER IT YOURSELF”
Inspired by the late 1960s utopian builders’ guide A Whole Earth Catalog, QIY: Queer It Yourself – Tools for Survival presents a forum for queer do-it-yourself culture and alternative world making. The exhibition is built around artists’ workstations, participatory spaces, hands-on training sites, maps, and user-friendly art that uses immersive and interactive experiences to demonstrate the idea of art as a tool and as having active agency within the totality of a meaningful lived world.

“Medicine Man II” is the second project by Daniel Goldstein for Make Art Stop AIDS. Using the medication bottles of South African individuals living with HIV, the sculpture also incorporates dozens of brightly colored, hand beaded spindles, created by the craftspeople of the UMCEBO Trust.
The colors represent different side effects experienced by those using the medications. A white disk beneath the sculpture outlines these in the corresponding colors. Visitors are encouraged to write down their own side-effects/medication experiences on the white disk.

Featuring examples primarily from the United Staes, South Africa, India and Brazil – four disparate nations whose distinct experiences with and responses to the epidemic make insighful studies – Make Art/Stop AIDS presents approximately sixty works including contemporary paintings and sculptures, photographs, performance videos, posters, animated shorts, digital media, installations and more to record the history of the epidemic, to appreciate its enormity, and to share information and ideas about future interventions.
The exhibition features works by Robert Gober, David Wojnarowicz, Fiona Kirkwood, Daniel Goldstein, Jean Carlomusto, and the collective Gran Gury, among many others. Watch opening night reception and interviews with the artists and curators
