AIDS and Covid-19:Art in the Time of Epidemics

Screen Shot 2020-04-26 at 11.12.05 AM

The first in a new online series dedicated to the artistic discourse during Covid-19. Three artists came together for a reflection on artistic activism and practice during the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and reflect on those experiences as the world enters the era of another pandemic. Gallery artist Susan Greer Emmerson, who was a young medical doctor during the height of the AIDS pandemic, was joined by guest panelist Antoinette LaFarge, Professor of Art at UC Irvine and an artist whose practice includes the multi-year project The AIDS Chronicles. Their conversation was moderated by Kingston Associate Artist Amy Kaczur, who reframed their experiences from the 80s and 90s to our present day. This talk was presented on Zoom on April 15, 2020.

Due to COVID-19: The gallery will be open by appointment only. Please contact the gallery at info@kingstongallery.com for an appointment. Stay tuned for ongoing updates on our schedule.
