NEW YORK, NY – DECEMBER 19: People including artists and free speech activists converge to support the work of the late multi-media artist David Wojnarowicz (pictured) in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on December 19, 2010 in New York City. Wojnarowiczs four-minute video was part of the National Portrait Gallery’s ‘Hide/Seek’ show until it was pulled after the Catholic League and members of Congress complained that the piece was sacrilegious due to a sequence showing ants crawling on a statue of Christ. The banning of the video, which led to its viewing at the New Museum in New York, has outraged artists and political activists who call the action censorship.
