Martin Masetto curated A Visual Decameron, featuring Mark Morrisroe, Richard Renaldi, David Wojnarowicz, Vincent Cianni, Becky Trotter, Jorge Veras, Keith Haring, Félix González-Torres, Peter Madero lll, Gregory Singletary, Yolanda, and Sarawut Chutiwongpeti.

Masetto says, "In the mid-14th century, Giovanni Boccaccio wrote the Decameron, a collection of 100 stories set within the context of the great epidemic of 1348, the Black Death. Boccaccio frames the tales with the account of a group of 10 young men and women who decide to flee their native city of Florence and take refuge from the scourge of the plague. The fictitious narrators adopt storytelling as a way of distancing themselves from the illness that had affected so many of their friends and family. For a period of 10 days, each character tells one story per day on a topic decided by a democratically elected "King" or "Queen" of that particular day." Read More.
