World AIDS Day 2018: ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS
Saturday, Dec. 8 | 2-4 p.m.
ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS is the 29th iteration of Visual AIDS’ longstanding Day With(out) Art project. Highlighting the impact of art in contemporary AIDS activism and advocacy, the program features new 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.
ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS seeks to reflect the persisting urgencies of today’s HIV/AIDS epidemic, including HIV criminalization, Big Pharma, homelessness, and the disproportionate effects of HIV 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. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Grissel Granados (Positive Women's Network – USA), Ayako Ochoa (Southern California HIV/AIDS Policy Research Center), Naomi Wilding (Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation), and Phill Wilson (Black AIDS Institute), moderated by Visual AIDS Day With(out) Art Project Manager Kyle Croft.
Please note that tickets to this event include general admission access to The Broad during regular museum hours on Saturday, December 8, 2018. Tickets do not guarantee entrance to the event; seating for this event is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
