Massachusetts: Exhibition of AIDS Activism in Visual Media Coming to Harvard
October 13, 2009
The art of AIDS activism -- at one time restricted to the sides of buses and subway stations -- is the subject of a new exhibition at the Harvard Art Museum's Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts.
The work of high-profile guerilla art collectives of the period also will be featured.
The exhibition marks the premiere of the ACT UP Oral History Project, a production by Sarah Schulman and Jim Hubbard. Fourteen video monitors in the lobby of the Center feature interviews with members of ACT UP New York from 2001 to the present.
The exhibit will open with a celebration 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 15. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. The exhibition runs through December; more information is available at www.harvardartmuseum.org.
