We are proud to partner with Visual AIDS for Day With(out) Art 2020 by presenting TRANSMISSIONS, an online program consisting of six new videos considering the impact of HIV and AIDS beyond the United States. The video program brings together artists working across the world: Jorge Bordello (Mexico), Gevi Dimitrakopoulou (Greece), Las Indetectables (Chile), Lucía Egaña Rojas (Chile/Spain), Charan Singh (India/UK), and George Stanley Nsamba (Uganda).

As the world continues to adapt to living with a new virus, COVID-19, these videos offer an opportunity to reflect on the resonances and differences between the two epidemics and their uneven distribution across geography, race, and gender.

TRANSMISSIONS will premiere on Monday, November 30 at 6 p.m. EST as part of a special online screening event hosted by Visual AIDS and supported by The Warhol. A live Q&A with the commissioned artists will follow the screening. RSVP here to receive updates about this event.

Beginning Tuesday, December 1, the video program will be available to view online at visualaids.org/transmissions. 

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.

This program is presented in honor of our longtime director, Thomas Sokolowski, who passed away in May. Tom was one of the founders of Day With(out) Art and served as director of the museum from 1996 to 2010.
