Gary Indiana is an American writer, filmmaker, and visual artist. He is perhaps best known for his loose trilogy of books (Three Month Fever, Resentment, Indifference), which are based on notorious criminals in the spotlight. He also based multiple novels on fictionalized events from his own life and those of his associates and contemporaries. His history as a film actor for example, particularly his work with German director Dieter Schidor and others in Rainer Werner Fassbinder's circle, is described in Gone Tomorrow.
Before he published his first novel in 1987, Indiana wrote, directed, and acted in a dozen plays. Between 1979 and the mid-1980s, Indiana acted in experimental films by Dieter Schidor, Ulrike Ottinger, and other European directors. Throughout his work, Indiana explores sexuality, violence, money, the media and contemporary America. As a visual artist he has had solo exhibitions at Participant Inc, NYC (2013); envoy enterprises, NYC (2015) 356 Mission, LA (2015); and was included in group shows at Whitney Biennial, NYC (2014); Labor gallery, Mexico City (2015).
In summer 2015 Rizzoli published his memoir I Can Give You Anything but Love.
