AIDS at Home.
The Museum of the City of New York is showcasing AIDS at Home: Art and Everyday Activism, and exhibit examining how artists and activists through the 1980’s to the present have evolved the idea of caretaking and brought forward the needs of the AIDs victims and caretakers to the public. From the beginning of the HIV/AIDs epidemic, New Yorkers had to create new forms of social support, identify new legal battles and explore new forms of artistic expression. The exhibition at the MCNY places paintings, photography, objects from activist groups and support programs to delve into the private stories of the terminal diseases as well as recreate the idea of activism through caretaking, art and community building.
AIDS at Home will include more then 20 artists, including David Wojnarowicz, Nan Goldin, Kia LaBeija, Hunter Reynolds, Hugh Steers, Luna Luis Ortiz, Lori Grinker, Avram Finkelstein, Susan Kuklin, L.J. Roberts, and Chloe Dzubilo, as well as several activist and arts organizations.
The exhibition will run until October 22nd at the Museum of the City of New York.
