Art & AIDS: Amor y Pasión
Curated by Osvaldo Perdomo and David Livingston
Art & AIDS: Amor y Pasión is an exhibition featuring artists living with HIV and AIDS. The exhibition is an outcome of weekly therapeutic art classes run by GMHC's Volunteer, Work and Wellness Center and by artists who have come to GMHC looking for help or support after they learned about their diagnosis.. Art teachers donate their time to teach classes for GMHC's clients (consisting of professional and non-professional artists), and assist in curating the annual exhibition. Artwork sold during the exhibition allows artists to increase their financial independence, plus, the artists are then able to participate in additional art shows as most galleries mandate that artists must have already been part of one show.
Opening Reception: January 22, 2015, 6-8 pm

Mouths Are Made for Eating
New work by Bridget de Gersigny
The Leslie-Lohman Museum in collaboration with Queer Art Mentorship presents Bridget de Gersigny: Mouths Are Made for Eating at Leslie Lohman Museum's
Wooster St Window Gallery. A year after Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed the Anti-Homosexuality Act into law, QAM 2013-14 fellow in visual art Bridget de Gersigny will create a multimedia installation that includes personal messages to President Museveni addressed to him by way of public signage that mimic the style and language of DIY lost-and-found, work needed, and personal ads typically found on the streets of New York. The public is invited to participate in the project by calling the number printed on the signs and leaving their comments and questions for both Museveny and de Gersigny.
