Day With(Out) Art An international day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis

In 1989, in response to the worsening AIDS crisis and coinciding with the World Health Organization’s second annual World AIDS Day on December 1st, Visual AIDS organized the first Day Without Art. A committee of art workers (curators, writers, and art professionals) sent out a call for “mourning and action in response to the AIDS crisis” that would celebrate the lives and achievements of lost colleagues and friends; encourage caring for all people with AIDS; educating diverse publics about HIV infection; and finding a cure. More than 800 arts organizations, museums and galleries throughout the U.S. participated by shrouding artworks and replacing them with information about HIV and safer sex, locking their doors or dimming their lights, and producing exhibitions, programs, readings, memorials, rituals, and performances.

Since 2010, Visual AIDS has worked with artists and filmmakers to internationally distribute videos to museums, art institutions, schools and AIDS organizations. To mark the 25th anniversary of Day With(out) Art in 2014, Visual AIDS distributed ALTERNATE ENDINGS, a program of commissioned videos by seven artists and collectives that was screened internationally and is available online to share widely

Each year since then, Visual AIDS has commissioned and distributed a video program for Day With(out) Art, coordinating screenings at over 100 venues around the world.

The VAC recognizes Day With(Out) Art annually through a partnership with VisualAIDS (NYC). This year we are proud to host the hour long screening Being and Belonging @ The Parkside Hotel Theatre, featuring: Camila Arce; Davina “Dee” Conner and Karin Hayes; Jaewon Kim; Clifford Prince King; Santiago Lemus and Camilo Acosta Huntertexas; Mikiki; and Jhoel Zempoalteca with La Jerry.

We hope to see you there. Seating is very limited so please call or email to ensure you will see the screening. [email protected] or 778-533-7123
