AIDS at Home: Art and Everyday Activism examines how artists and activists have expanded the idea of caretaking and family and navigated 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 HIV/AIDS epidemic has spurred New Yorkers to create new forms of social support, identify new legal battles, and explore new artistic terrain. The exhibition places paintings, photography, and film alongside archival objects from activist groups and support programs to uncover the private stories of HIV and AIDS and reconsider caretaking, community building, and making art as acts of resistance.

 "AIDS at Home" features work by Anthea Black, Gavin Browning, Bill Bytsura, Vincent Cianni, Ben Cuevas, Chloe Dzubilo, Liliana Fasanella, Avram Finkelstein, Carl George, Nan Goldin, Lori Grinker, Alexandra Juhasz, Yeonjune Jung, Theodore Kerr, Alain Klarer, Susan Kuklin, Kia LaBeija, Gin Louie, Fred McDarrah, Joyce McDonald, Luna Luis Ortiz, Hunter Reynolds, Eric Rhein, L.j. Roberts, Ira Sachs, Rafael Sánchez, Juanita Mohammed Szczepanski, Michael Slocum, Lee Snider, Hugh Steers, Sur Rodney Sur, Gail Thacker

The groups and organizations include ACT UP NY, the ACLU, Bailey House, GMHC, God’s Love We Deliver, Housing Works, Stand Up Harlem, VOCAL-NY, WAVE (Women’s AIDS Video Enterprise), and What Would an HIV Doula Do?
