In January 1982, Wojnarowicz created a 10 by 10 inch work for the Public Illumination Gallery. His stencil piece was of a burning house. The gallery sold the piece for a hundred dollars. The same year, Wojnarowicz participated in the gallery’s 411 show which was made up of four one-week, one-person shows. He created stencils on the gallery walls. A tape recorder playing an audio track accompanied the work.
