Homemade Chocoloate Covered Sex Polaroid (Kohler Co. foundry series) Untitled-# pending , 2001, Dave Krueger enameled (milk chocolate) iron casting, approx 5x4x1 inches

As someone who researches 1980s queer New York history, I do indeed find Polaroids to be magic. They are fetish objects that deliver a fantasy of being there. The residue of the instant produces, for me, a sense of immediacy. - Ricardo Montez

In November 2013, Ricardo Montez curated Instant Intimacies, featuring artists Benjamin Fredrickson, Rebecca Guberman-Bloom, Dave Krueger, Mark Morrisro, and Leslie Kaliades.


Each month, Visual AIDS invites guest curators, drawn from both the arts and AIDS communities, to select several works from the Frank Moore Archive Project and Visual AIDS Artists Registry.
