Day With(out) Art 2019
Please take time today to watch the video playing on the monitors located in Tisch common spaces - RADIANT PRESENCE is a digital slideshow featuring artwork by artists living with HIV/AIDS and those who are no longer with us.
Tisch is also screening STILL BEGINNING, a program of seven newly commissioned videos responding to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic. The film will be showing on a loop in Room 1076 on the 10th floor at 721 Broadway from 12pm to 5pm TODAY. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to stop in at any time.
The seven short videos by Shanti Avirgan, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Carl George, Viva Ruiz, Iman Shervington, Jack Waters/Victor F.M. Torres, and Derrick WoodsMorrow range in subject from anti-stigma work in New Orleans to public sex culture in Chicago, highlighting pioneering AIDS activism and staging intergenerational conversations. Recalling Gregg Bordowitz’s reminder that “THE AIDS CRISIS IS STILL BEGINNING,”* the video program resists narratives of resolution or conclusion, considering the continued urgency of HIV/AIDS in the contemporary moment while revisiting resonant cultural histories from the past three decades.
