Nancy Brooks Brody’s Book Marks align with and take inspiration from the Silence = Death coalition’s 1986 iconic move of inverting a symbol that was originally meant to oppress, dominate, shame and silence lives 53 years earlier in 1933. Here celebrating TAG’s 29th year, Brody continues to reorient the pink and black shape in this unique multiple honoring TAG’s crucial work and origins in ACT UP.
During a vital time where the urgent work of saving lives was met with homophobia and racism, rather than retreat we galvanized, rising above violence, hatred and fear. We continue to care for one another, hoping to save lives, while we reclaim and name ourselves, still fighting to live in a country where healthcare should be a human right.
The Book Marks are part of an ongoing series by Nancy Brooks Brody based on specific measures: books are learning tools, recordings of experiences; bookmarks track location, mark time, space and hold place.
The unique multiple Book Marks come in three versions; supporters of TAG will receive a version on a first-come basis.
The 2021 TAG Limited Art Edition was supported by a generous grant from the Marta Heflin Foundation.
