Text

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Day With(out) Art, Visual AIDS presents seven newly commissioned videos by Shanti Avirgan, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Carl George, Viva Ruiz, Iman Shervington, Jack Waters, and Derrick Woods-Morrow. These works consider the continuing presence of HIV/AIDS in the contemporary moment while revisiting resonant cultural histories of art and activism from the past three decades.

As one of three national marquee screenings, the MCA event will include panel discussions with artists and scholars following the presentation.

MCA Screenings feature works of contemporary cinema that expand traditional notions of moviegoing and are organized by Assistant Curator Christy LeMaster with the Performance and Public Practice team.
