QWE’RE, The Chateau and SET are proud to partner with Visual AIDS for Day With(out) Art 2022 by presenting Being & Belonging, a programme of seven short videos highlighting under-told stories of HIV and AIDS from the perspective of artists living with HIV across the world.
The programme 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 centres 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.
Doors at 7.30pm, films start at 8pm. This is a free event – feel free to bring snacks and drinks! The films will be screened in the W1 community room, someone will collect attendees from the reception area.
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.
