Toxic Beauty: The Art of Frank Moore


Register now at our EventBrite page!

In highly detailed figurative paintings, Frank Moore (1953–2002) created compelling vistas of alternate universes replete with fantastic imagery. Often autobiographical, many of his works reference his HIV-positive status and the state of the health care industry. Others address ecological concerns and the dangers of genetically modified foods. Meticulously researching each of his themes, Moore devised an arsenal of symbols to depict them. Toxic Beauty spans Moore’s entire career—cut short too early by his death from AIDS.

We will begin our journey at the NYU’s Fales Library and continue our engagement with Frank Moore’s legacy across Washington Square Park at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery.

We are honored that Rebecca Lowery, the Grey’s Graduate Curatorial Assistant, will be joined by Randall Bourscheidt in crafting our journey through Toxic Beauty.
