Toxic Beauty: The Art of Frank Moore

Grey Art Gallery, New York University, New York, New York

Fall 2012

Spanning his entire career, Toxic Beauty was a major survey of work by this remarkable artist whose life was cut short by AIDS. The show took place at both the Grey Art Gallery and at Fales Library which houses the Frank Moore Archive. Featuring figurative and highly detailed, large-scale paintings that address ecological concerns and the crisis of AIDS and the health care industry, Toxic Beauty presented, as well, drawings, numerous sketchbooks, films, maquettes, source materials and ephemera.
