(RE)PRESENTING AIDS: CULTURE and ACCOUNTABILITY: Inspired by Hugh Ryan's NY TIMES op-ed, How to Whitewash a Plague, for Visual AIDS I worked with the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History and CLAGS to present a public forum in August 2014 which explored the role museums, galleries and cultural institutions play, and can play, when presenting exhibitions related to HIV/AIDS. This forum included voices involved in the curation, marketing and administration of AIDS related exhibitions, as well as artists, critics, and others with an invested interest. The evening was an interactive discussion with an opportunity to consider the needs and wants related to an exhibition about HIV/AIDS. It was moderator by Ann Northrop. Speakers were: Jason Baumann, Collections Strategy/LGBT Collections, New York Public Library; Kia Benbow, Artist, grenAIDS; Jim Hubbard, Filmmaker, United in Anger; Karl McCool, Assistant Director, Dirty Looks; Kris Nuzzi, Curator, Not Over; Hunter O'Hanian, Museum Director, Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art; Edwin Ramoran, Manager of Public Programs and Community Engagement, The Studio Museum in Harlem; Hugh Ryan, Writer, Founding Director of the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History; Amy Sadao, The Daniel W. Dietrich, II Director, Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania; and Nelson Santos, Executive Director, Visual AIDS. TRANSCRIPTS AND MORE INFO.
