Hybrid Program, Day With(out) Art 2022: Being & Belonging

In recognition of the 2022 Day With(out) Art, the Yale Office of LGBTQ Resources, the Yale University Art Gallery, the Yale Center for British Art, and Public Humanities at Yale are proud to partner with Visual AIDS to present “Being & Belonging,” a screening of seven short videos highlighting little-told stories from the perspective of artists living with HIV across the world. The program features newly commissioned work by Camila Arce (Argentina), Davina “Dee” Conner and Karin Hayes (USA), Jaewon Kim (South Korea), Clifford Prince King (USA), Santiago Lemus and Camilo Acosta Huntertexas (Colombia), Mikiki (Canada), and Jhoel Zempoalteca and La Jerry (Mexico). From navigating sex and intimacy to confronting stigma and isolation, “Being & Belonging” centers the emotional realities of living with HIV today. The videos are a call for belonging from those who have been stigmatized within their communities or left out of mainstream HIV/AIDS narratives.

Please be advised: This program features content that may not be appropriate for either children or younger viewers. Trigger warning: intravenous drug use.

The 5:30 pm film screening will be followed by a panel conversation at 6:30 pm with Professor Roderick Ferguson (Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies) and Creighton Baxter (Yale School of Art), moderated by Olivia R. Polk (American Studies). Both will be held in person at the Robert L. McNeil, Jr., Lecture Hall, Yale University Art Gallery. Space is limited.
