Untitled (One day this kid …)

New Fundraising Edition with the Estate of David Wojnarowicz
November 28, 2012

Printed Matter has worked with the estate of David Wojnarowicz and PPOW to produce a new letterpress edition of Wojnarowicz’s 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, combined with the embossed texture of the image and text gives this edition a three dimensional quality.

The edition will be launched on Wednesday 28th November from 5pm - 7pm with a small reception at our Chelsea store front. In conjunction with this edition release we have curated a selection of editions, publications and ephemera by and about David Wojnarowicz.

The edition can be purchased “here”:catalog/32472.

Please note this fundraising edition is limited to two per customer.

We would like to thank the estate of David Wojnarowicz and PPOW for their generous support in helping produce this fundraising edition with us.
