World AIDS Day 2022
In collaboration with the Asheville Art Museum, WNCAP is proud to partner with Visual AIDS for a Day With(out) Art, December 1, 11am to 9pm & December 2-4, 11am to 6pm at 2 South Pack Square.
The Asheville Art Museum will present the new film, Being & Belonging, on a loop. The film features seven short videos centering the emotional reality of living with HIV today.
The program features new work by Clifford Prince King, Jaewon Kim, Mikiki, Davina "Dee" Conner & Karin Hayes, Camila Arce, Jhoel Zempoalteca & La Jerry, and Camilo Acosta Huntertexas & Santiago Lemus.
In 1989, in response to the worsening AIDS crisis, Visual AIDS organized the first Day With(out) Art; a call to action that would celebrate the lives and achievements of lost colleagues and friends; encourage caring for all people with AIDS; educate diverse publics about HIV infection; and find a cure. 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.
Coinciding with World AIDS Day, Visual AIDS organizes annual observances of Day With(out) Art, creating and distributing free video programs to universities, museums, art institutions, and AIDS organizations to be screened on or around December 1.
