American artist Mark Morrisroe was 30 years old when he died from an AIDS-related illness in 1989. In the final years of his short life Morrisroe produced photograms using x-ray imagery of his own body alongside cuttings from pornographic magazines and other ephemera.

This archive exhibition forms part of Liverpool Biennial 2012 – The Unexpected Guest.
