Mark this. It's a bold, big group show meant to address how AIDS changed the course of American art, including 125 works by Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorpe, Robert Gober, Catherine Opie, Jenny Holzer, Annie Leibovitz, Judy Chicago, Jasper Johns, Barbara Kruger, David Wojnarowicz, Andres Serrano, Martin Wong, Sue Coe, Karen Finley, General Idea, Nan Goldin, Jim Hodges, Peter Hujar, Kalup Linzy, Niki de Saint Phalle, fierce pussy, Gran Fury, Nayland Blake, Ross Bleckner, Scott Burton, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Charles LeDray, Glenn Ligon, Lari Pittman, and Paul Thek, plus many more. Look at that list! The show is curated by TAM's Rock Hushka and Jonathan D. Katz (Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture), and it's a decade in the making. It's already visited Los Angeles, and after this it will go to the Bronx, but it was organized right here in Tacoma, "the city that established the nation’s first government-sanctioned needle exchange program," TAM director Stephanie Stebich points out. The art, in all manner of media, dates from 1981 to today. JEN GRAVES
