Krannert Art Museum
Beau Gomez, This Bed I Made, 2023. Commissioned by Visual AIDS for Everyone I Know Is Sick.
Dec 01, 2023 – 10am–4pm
Dec 02, 2023 – 10am–4pm
Lower Level, Auditorium (KAM 62)
Krannert Art Museum is proud to partner with Visual AIDS on Day With(out) Art 2023 by presenting Everyone I Know Is Sick, a program of five videos generating connections between HIV and other forms of illness and disability.
The program features newly commissioned work by Dorothy Cheung (Hong Kong), Hiura Fernandes & Lili Nascimento (Brazil), Beau Gomez (Canada/Philippines), Dolissa Medina & Ananias P. Soria (USA), and Kurt Weston (USA).
Inspired by a statement from Cyrée Jarelle Johnson in the book Black Futures, Everyone I Know Is Sick examines how our society excludes disabled and sick people by upholding a false dichotomy of health and sickness. Inviting us to understand disability as a common experience rather than an exception to the norm, the program highlights a range of experiences spanning HIV, COVID, mental health, and aging. The commissioned artists foreground the knowledge and expertise of disabled and sick people in a world still grappling with multiple ongoing pandemics.
KAM will show this year’s videos in a looped presentation all day on World AIDS Day Friday, Dec 1 and Saturday, Dec 2 in the KAM Auditorium on the lower level of the museum.
