Untitled (One day this kid . . .)
New Edition with the Estate of David Wojnarowicz

Reception & Launch:Wednesday, November 28, 5-7 PM

Printed Matter, 195 10th Ave, NYC


Printed Matter worked with the estate of David Wojnarowicz and PPOW to produce a new letterpress edition of Wojnarowiczs iconic work, Untitled (One day this kid . . .). The work features an image of Wojnarowicz as an innocent child encompassed by angry bold text describing the abuse that he will inevitably endure in his life because he is gay. The words provide a very powerful and moving autobiographical story of Wojnarowicz's life, giving readers a small insight into the life of this enigmatic East Village artist.

Originally published in 1990 as a Photostat, 30 × 40 1/8 in. Edition of 10. This new edition is produced as a letterpress print, in an edition of 100 with 10 Ap's printed by Coeur Noir studio in Williamsburg. Each print has an authentication stamp from the Estate of Wojnarowicz on the back. Printed on a thick 8.5 x 11 inch card the piece feels like a tablet. The embossed texture of the image and text gives this edition a further three dimensional quality.

In conjunction with this edition release Printed Matter has curated a selection of publications, prints and ephemera by and about David Wojnarowicz.
