Where: In the gallery with free coffee from Lost Coffee
What: Honoring World AIDS Day on December 1, 2018, the Vicki Myhren Gallery in conjunction with VisualAIDS presents ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS, to be held Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 4 pm in the gallery. Free coffee will be provided!
ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS highlights the impact of art in HIV/AIDS activism and advocacy today by commissioning compelling short videos from six inspiring community organizations and collectives—ACT UP NY, Positive Women’s Network, Sero Project, The SPOT, Tacoma Action Collective, and VOCAL NY. The program represents a wide range of organizational strategies, from direct action to grassroots service providers to nation-wide movement building, while considering the role of creative practices in activist responses to the ongoing AIDS crisis.
ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS reflects the persisting urgencies of today’s HIV/AIDS epidemic by pointing to pressing and intersecting political concerns, including HIV criminalization, Big Pharma, access to healthcare, and the disproportionate effects of HIV/AIDS on marginalized communities. At a moment of growing interest in the histories of AIDS activism, ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS foregrounds contemporary engagements between activists, artists, and cultural workers on the front lines.
