For the 29th annual Day With(out) Art, The Studio Museum in Harlem is proud to partner with Visual AIDS and the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling for the uptown premiere of Alternate Endings, Activist Risings. This film highlights the impact of art in AIDS activism and advocacy today by commissioning compelling short videos from six inspiring community organizations and collectives: ACT UP NY, Positive Women’s Network, Sero Project, The SPOT, Tacoma Action Collective, and VOCAL NY. The participating organizations represent a wide range of operational strategies, from direct action and grassroots service providers to nation-wide movement building.
Following the screening, grassroots organizers Cedric Sturdevant (The SPOT), Michelle Lopez (Just KIDS), and visual artist Frederick Weston (Visual AIDS) will join for a discussion moderated by Lauren Kelley, Director and Chief Curator of the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art and Storytelling.
This program seeks to consider the role of creative practices in activist responses to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic and its intersecting political concerns, including HIV criminalization, Big Pharma, homelessness, and the disproportionate effects of HIV on marginalized communities. Amid growing interest in the histories of AIDS activism, Alternate Endings, Activist Risings. foregrounds contemporary engagements between activists, artists, and cultural workers on the front lines.
