Day With(out) Art 2020: TRANSMISSIONS

Screening Virtual

In partnership with Visual AIDS, Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Studio Museum in Harlem

For Day With(out) Art 2020, Visual AIDS presents TRANSMISSIONS, a program of six new videos considering the impact of HIV and AIDS beyond the United States. The video program brings together artists working across the world: Jorge Bordello (Mexico), Gevi Dimitrakopoulou (Greece), Las Indetectables (Chile), Lucía Egaña Rojas (Chile/Spain), Charan Singh (India/UK), and George Stanley Nsamba (Uganda).

The program does not intend to give a comprehensive account of the global AIDS epidemic, but provides a platform for a diversity of voices from beyond the United States, offering insight into the divergent and overlapping experiences of people living with HIV around the world today. The six commissioned videos cover a broad range of subjects, such as the erasure of women living with HIV in South America, ineffective Western public health campaigns in India, and the realities of stigma and disclosure for young people in Uganda.

As the world continues to adapt to living with a new virus, COVID-19, these videos offer an opportunity to reflect on the resonances and differences between the two epidemics and their uneven distribution across geography, race, and gender.

TRANSMISSIONS will premiere on November 30 at 6pm EST on visualaids.org/transmissions as part of a special online eventfollowed by a panel discussion with the commissioned artists, moderated by Jih-Fei Cheng.

Please RSVP to receive updates about this event.

Beginning December 1st, the video program will be available to view online at moca.org/screen.
