ACT NOW: Perspectives on Contemporary Performance and HIV/AIDS
Date
September 19 2013 at 19:00
Description

Visual AIDS and the New Museum present an evening of conversation between performers Justin Vivian Bond, Hunter Reynolds, and Julie Tolentino, whose works each approach the ongoing AIDS crisis in a variety of important and profound ways. Moderated by Benjamin Shepard, the discussion will explore the evolving role that performance has played in the context of HIV/AIDS, while highlighting a diverse spectrum of performance practices that exemplify contemporary HIV/AIDS engagement.

The talk is organized in conjunction with “NOT OVER,” a project celebrating Visual AIDS’s twenty-five years of activity, and “Performance Archiving Performance,” part of the Fall 2013 Season: “Archives” at the New Museum.
