The Magic Box.
Other highlights were photographs by Martin Wong, punk rock handbills and zines, and an abundance of important items that belonged to David Wojnarowicz.
Oh, my. The David Wojnarowicz materials. Seriously. Now we were swimming. We saw the mask Wojnarowicz used for his Rimbaud series, and large prints of his deeply moving photographs of Peter Hujar on his way out of this world. So, we were already breathless when Taylor pulled out Wonarowicz's "Magic Box", a wooden box with "The Magic Box" inscribed on the top. Inside were some of the artist's most precious trinkets and toys that were the inspiration for his daring career.
Before we left, Taylor showed us what might be the funniest 10 minutes of American television ever recorded. It was footage of John Sex being interviewed on CNN by a news commentator that was as propped up as Sex's pompadour. I think I might have hurt myself laughing. It was an irreverent end to an evening of looking inside art that defined irreverence.
