Still Here: Art on HIV/AIDS at The Stamp Gallery

posted on October 28, 2019

College Park, MD. This fall the Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland, College Park, presents Still Here: Art on HIV/AIDS, an exhibition of contemporary artwork on HIV/AIDS in dialogue with panels from The NAMES Project Foundation AIDS Memorial Quilt.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt was last hosted in the Stamp Gallery 30 years ago. In the interceding years and despite many technological and medical advances, HIV/AIDS is still an epidemic that disproportionately impacts the dispossessed and marginalized. Politics still tie into policies and funding on preventative drugs, a major barrier to ending the epidemic. Much has changed since the 1980s, but what political, social, and medical barriers to prevention and treatment remain? On view October 29th through December 7th, this exhibition will include programming on World Aids Day and Day With(out) Art, December 1st. The Stamp Gallery will also partner with Visual AIDS to present STILL BEGINNING, a program of seven newly commissioned videos responding to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic by Shanti Avirgan, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Carl George, Viva Ruiz, Iman Shervington, Jack Waters/Victor F.M. Torres, and Derrick Woods-Morrow.


This exhibition is cosponsored by the University of Maryland Office of Multicultural Involvement & Community Advocacy (MICA), and partially funded by a Pepsi Enhancement Fund Grant.

Mission Statement

The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming the gallery offers an outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunity. The gallery space can be used as a laboratory for emerging artists and curators to experiment and work through their ideas, emphasizing the importance of the process to contemporary artistic practice. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.
