MCA Chicago is proud to partner with Visual AIDS for the thirtieth annual Day With(out) Art by presenting STILL BEGINNING, a program of seven newly commissioned videos responding to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic by Shanti Avirgan, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Carl George, Viva Ruiz, Iman Shervington, Jack Waters/Victor F.M. Torres, and Derrick Woods-Morrow.
Recalling Gregg Bordowitz’s reminder that “THE AIDS CRISIS IS STILL BEGINNING,”* the video program resists narratives of resolution or conclusion, considering the continued urgency of HIV/AIDS in the contemporary moment while revisiting resonant cultural histories from the past three decades. More information about STILL BEGINNING is available on the Visual AIDS website.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with artists Carl George and Derrick Woods-Morrow along with artist Patric McCoy, one of the subjects of Woods-Morrow’s video. The conversation will be moderated by Risa Puleo.
MCA Screenings feature works of contemporary cinema that expand traditional notions of moviegoing and are organized by Assistant Curator Christy LeMaster with the Performance and Public Practice team.
**Tickets to this event are free, limit 2 per person.**
