Besides David Wojnarowicz’s AIDS Jesus Video, ‘Hide/Seek’ Isn’t All That Shocking

Maybe the best thing curators at the National Portrait Gallery’s Hide/Seek show could’ve done to drive ticket sales is yank David Wojnarowicz’s 1987 video “A Fire in My Belly” out of the exhibit: “One striking feature of ‘Hide/Seek’ is precisely its lack of deliberately inflammatory images. Instead, much of the show appears to be a fairly quiet succession of smallish pieces, many of them black and white photos, requiring close examination and inviting contemplation.”

      There are no “ticket sales” at the National Portrait Gallery. It is free admission 364 days a year, closed on Christmas Day.
