With over 40 contributors from around the world, this issue of the On Curating journal wrestles with “forgetting”, “seeing”, “collecting” and “making” AIDS related culture in the 21st century, and the growing impulse to historize aspects of early responses to the crisis. Through academic essays, conversations, visual projects, reprints and personal reflections, a reader will be exposed to ideas, theories, images, and advice from artists, academics, activists, curators, writers and others around the ethics and practices of curating AIDS-related culture within the ongoing epidemic.
Edited by writer, organizer and educator Theodore (ted) Kerr, WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT AIDS COULD FILL A MUSEUM is an important contribution to the vital conversation about HIV/AIDS-related culture that both centers the role of museums as sites for community, knowledge sharing, inspiration and healing, while also exploring their limits and future possibilities.
At this event, NYC based contributors will share their work, and engage in conversation with each other and guests. Free. All are welcome. Please RSVP here .
Note: This event will be held in the EFA Center Conference Room on the 3rd floor.
