Museum of the City of New York
AIDS at Home: Art and Everyday Activism
Through October 22
This compelling new exhibition examines how artists and activists have expanded the idea of caretaking and family while navigating the political stakes of domestic life in the face of the HIV/AIDS crisis from the early 1980s to the present. From the earliest diagnoses, the epidemic has spurred New Yorkers to create new forms of social support, identify new legal battles, and explore new artistic terrain.
AIDS at Home highlights work by more than 20 artists, including David Wojnarowicz, Nan Goldin, Kia LaBeija, Hunter Reynolds, Hugh Steers, Luna Luis Ortiz, Lori Grinker, Avram Finkelstein, Susan Kuklin, L.J. Roberts, and Chloe Dzubilo.
