Day With(out) Art 2022: "BEING & BELONGING"

Thursday, December 1, 2022 - 10:00am to 4:00pm Sheldon Museum of Art

Sheldon Museum of Art is proud to partner with Visual AIDS (www.visualaids.org) for Day With(out) Art 2022 by presenting "Being & Belonging," a program of seven short videos highlighting under-told stories of HIV and AIDS from the perspective of artists living with HIV across the world.

The program features 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), and Jhoel Zempoalteca and La Jerry (México).

From navigating sex and intimacy to confronting stigma and isolation, "Being & Belonging" centers the emotional realities of living with HIV today. How does living with HIV shift the ways that a person experiences, asks for, or provides love, support, and belonging? 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.

The free, hour-long, looped program will be presented in Sheldon's Ethel S. Abbott Auditorium during open hours December 1 (10 am-4 pm) and December 2 (10 am-7 pm). Information and resources from the Nebraska AIDS Project, University Health Center, and the LGBTQA+ Center will also be available.

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.
