Luis Cruz Azaceta, AIDS Patient, 1989, Acrylic on canvas, 48 1/4 x 36 inches.

Luis Cruz Azaceta is named in a complimentary long form review of Art after Stonewall: 1969-89 in the New York Times. Holland Cotter notes "...though we’re in the era of AIDS, the sense of urgency that absolutely defined that time is missing. This is not to say there’s a shortage of good work." He goes on to say that "The show would be valuable if it did nothing more than showcase artists like Laura Aguilar, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Jerome Caja, Lenore Chinn, Maxine Fine, Luis Frangella and Marc Lida..." Art after Stonewall, which surveys two decades following the Stonewall riots and the subsequent LGBTQ+ movement, is on view at NYU's Grey Art Gallery and the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art through July 21.
