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.”
