Video Program: Day With(out) Art
Being & Belonging

World AIDS Day

Thursday, December 1st 2022


Presented by the Arts Research Center with the California College of the Arts and Visual AIDS NY.

For over 30 years, Visual AIDS has organized annual observances of Day With(out) Art, calling on art institutions to respond to the ongoing AIDS crisis. For 2022, Visual AIDS presents Being & Belonging, a program of seven short videos from artists living with HIV across the world. From navigating sex and intimacy to confronting stigma and isolation, Being & Belonging centers the emotional realities of living with HIV today. The seven videos are a call for belonging from those that have been stigmatized within their communities or left out of mainstream HIV/AIDS narratives. ARC is honored to participate in Day With(out) Art for the fifth year in a row, in collaboration with California College of the Arts.  

This one hour video program highlights seven under-told stories of HIV and AIDS from the perspective of artists living with HIV across the world, featuring newly commissioned work by:

Camila Arce (Argentina)

Davina “Dee” Conner and Karin Hayes (USA)

Jaewon Kim (South Korea)

Clifford Prince King (USA)

Santiago Lemus and Camilo Acosta Huntertexas (Colombia)

Mikiki (Canada)

Jhoel Zempoalteca and La Jerry (México)
