New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (The Center) has partnered with Visual AIDS for their Day With(out) Art program as part of its World AIDS Day programming that kicks off tomorrow, Dec. 1st. Visual AIDS is a New York-based non-profit that utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. Each year Visual AIDS commissions videos from artists and partners with various cultural institutions/organizations throughout the world to present these short films.
This year’s program is called ENDURING CARE. It will run on a continuous loop during The Center’s operating hours inside the Keith Haring Bathroom/”Once Upon a Time…” The community will have time and space to view the program, reflect on the topic of HIV/AIDS, remember the life/work of Keith, and learn more about the communities he fought for and supported.
The program highlights strategies of community care within the ongoing HIV epidemic and features newly commissioned work by Katherine Cheairs, Cristóbal Guerra, Danny Kilbride, Abdul-Aliy A. Muhammad and Uriah Bussey, Beto Pérez, Steed Taylor, and J Triangular and the Women’s Video Support Project.
The program can be viewed in person at The Center or online.
