OUT at CHM | Art, AIDS, and Activism in Chicago
How was art used to speak out about the AIDS pandemic, advocate for its victims, and critique public response to this health crisis? Drawing on two exhibitions on view in Chicago—ArtAIDSAmerica at the Alphawood Gallery and One day this kid will get larger at the DePaul Art Museum—this presentation examines artists who participated as activists during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 90s and contemporary artists responding to that time and ongoing HIV health issues.
Major support for Out at CHM comes from the Exelon Corporation with additional support from Robert Kohl and Clark Pellett and the Richard L. Ohlhausen Education Fund.
