Militant Eroticism: The ART+Positive Archives
Edited by Dr. Daniel Berger and John Neff (Sternberg Press)After Silence: A History of AIDS through Its Images
By Avram Finkelstein (University of California Press)
From the very start of the response to AIDS, communities have come together in urgency and creativity to improve and save lives. For this year’s Day With(out) Art / World AIDS Day, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art is honoring the release of two new books that explore the power of art and collective action.
Daniel Berger and John Neff will share art and histories from their books and contextualize Art+Positive’s practice in relationship to our current moment. Avram Finkelstein will tell the story of how his work and other protest artworks associated with the early years of the AIDS pandemic were created. They will be joined by Jennifer Flynn Walker (Center for Popular Democracy) and Jaron Benjamin (Housing Works), AIDS activists inspired by the past, who will share the behind-the-scenes process of recent health-care activism. The conversation, organized by Theodore (Ted) Kerr, will be moderated by Lisa Dent.More...
