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.
