Sàn Art was honored to partner with Visual AIDS to host DAY WITH(OUT) ART 2022: Being & Belonging*, a screening programme of seven short videos highlighting the under-told stories of HIV and AIDS from the perspective of artists living with HIV across the world.
The programme featured new work by Camila Arce (Argentina), Davina “Dee” Conner and Karin Hayes (USA), Jaewon Kim (South Korea), Clifford Prince King (USA), Santiago Lemus and Camilo Acosta Huntertexas (Colombia), Mikiki (Canada), and Jhoel Zempoalteca and La Jerry (México).
From navigating sex and intimacy to confronting stigma and isolation, Being & Belonging centers the emotional reality of living with HIV today. How does living with HIV shift the ways that a person experiences, asks for, or provides love, support, and belonging? The seven videos are a call for belonging from those that have been stigmatised within their communities or left out of mainstream HIV/AIDS narratives.
*Day With(Out) Art is a project of Visual AIDS, a New York-based non-profit that utilises art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. For more information on Visual AIDS, visit → http://www.visualaids.org
Being & Belonging accompanies the public programmes surrounding Sàn Art’s latest show, ‘Don’t Call it Art!’ – a group exhibition from the archive of Veronika Radulovic. The exhibited archive revolves around the work of three artists: Trương Tân, Nguyễn Minh Thành and Nguyễn Quang Huy – all widely considered to be pioneers of contemporary art in Vietnam
