David McDiarmid: When This You See Remember Me
Author: SALLY GRAY, SIMON MAIDMENT AND TED GOTT
David McDiarmid: When This You See Remember Me brings together, for the first time, selected scholarly and personal accounts of the life and work of this pioneering figure in the visual articulation of a gay male political sensibility.
Lavishly illustrated, the volume features McDiarmid’s groundbreaking gay liberation work in 1970s Sydney, his first creative responses to AIDS in New York in the 1980s and his luminous affirmations of courage and defiance during the 1990s. The history of McDiarmid’s eventful life is foregrounded by the sumptuous visuality of his pattern and decoration, text and calligraphy, fierce humour, and visceral pleasure in materials.
