Curatorial and Collaborative Projects – In the hallway that joins the community area and the gallery are representative images from 3 projects: The Wizard Of Oz Series (shown with Group Material’s AIDS Timeline), Who Killed Robert Mapplethorpe? (from an exhibition that I curated at the San Francisco Art Institute called, Inside/Out: Voices from Home); and a project that I made in the store front of Intersection for the Arts for World AIDS Day, 1997 called, Clean Works.

6. ACT-UP Banner Paintings – Southern Exposure Gallery, 1989.
For this series of paintings I took excerpts from various texts that dealt with AIDS, and by juxtaposing the texts, an action word is called forth that is either revealed or concealed by the two readings.

11. Inside/Out: Voices from Home – Curated by Rudy Lemcke 1990
San Francisco Art Institute
The artists included in Inside Out:Voices from Home were selected for their commitment to ending the AIDS epidemic, willingness to face personal trauma with hope and support, and determination to keep AIDS-related issues in the public eye. This exhibition has largely been ignored by histories of AIDS art. The exhibition included The NAMES Project, the Women’s Caucus of ACT UP, HIV+ Women’s Movement Theatre Support Group, Anna Halperin, Masami Teraoka, among others.
