Visual AIDS is working with nine influential artists, activists and curators--Bill Arning, Ian Alteveer, Chris Vargas, Rae Lewis-Thornton, Mark S. King, Allen Frame, Maria Mejia, Jack Mackenroth and Kimberly Drew--to present Radiant Presence, a digital slideshow with images from the Visual AIDS Artist+ Registry, the largest database of works by artists with HIV/AIDS.
For the 26th annual Day With(out) Art, Visual AIDS will partner with organizations like yours--art institutions, AIDS-service organizations, and universities--to present Radiant Presence internationally. Radiant Presence is a digital slideshow for programmed screenings and looping projections and presentations. The curated images will be interspersed with text, including current statistics and statements about the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic.
Radiant Presence will run for approximately five minutes, can be easily looped, and all technical and presentation logistics will be coordinated with you by Visual AIDS. Visual AIDS will also project the slideshow in highly visible locations in major cities including New York, San Francisco and Miami (during Art Basel).
If you’re interested in screening Radiant Presence at your organization, or highlighting the project through your organization’s social media platforms, please contact Visual AIDS Programs Manager Alex Fialho at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-627-9855.
