Live Performances: Gregg Bordowitz


Join Cooley Gallery for a series of live performances in conjunction with Gregg Borddowitz's exhibition I Wanna Be Well. Over the years as Gregg Bordowitz has turned his poetics and camera lens inward, he has examined rituals of living with HIV, often in relation to popular images of disaster and cultural spectacle: crashes and pratfalls, in particular. Seeking to reach the largest possible audiences, Bordowitz has deployed the language of television to create internationally celebrated films about the culture and politics of the AIDS epidemic, intended, in Bordowitz’s words, “... to facilitate moves toward the treatment and cure of AIDS, the distribution of HIV-prevention education, and the protection of civil rights.” Bordowitz’ films, writings, and performances share a concern with pedagogies of healing and learning while embracing doubt and vulnerability.
