Transformer Art Gallery to show Wojnarowicz piece

After the Catholic League complained about a video by David Wojnarowicz containing ants crawling on a cross -- part of the sexuality-themed exhibit "Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture" -- the National Portrait Gallery removed the piece. Now Logan Circle gallery Transformer is playing the video in their display window. Transformer art director Victoria Reis speaks about their reasons for quickly putting the video back up for display, and the mistake the Smithsonian museum made in bowing down to outside pressures.
