We are ecstatic to announce our partnership with the Columbus Museum of Art for a special lm screening of ALTERNATE ENDINGS, RADICAL BEGINNINGS to mark A Day With(out) Art on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 6:30pm. Films by Cheryl Dunye, Kia LaBeija, and Thomas Allen Harris, among numerous others, will be featured. This is in celebration and honor of World AIDS Day.
Visual AIDS started A Day With(out) in 1989 as a day of mourning and action in response to the AIDS crisis. This year, Visual AIDS commissioned seven artists to create short videos that prioritize Black narratives. Curated by Erin Christovale and Vivian Crockeet, the program consists of videos by Mykki Blanco, Cheryl Dunye & Ellen Spiro, Reina Gosset, Thomas Allen Harris, Kia Labeija, Tiona McClodden, and Brontez Purnell. To introduce the films and to give voice to those impacted by the ongoing epidemic, CMA partnered with Black Chick Media and the Columbus Black International Film Festival; CATCO; Creative Control Fest; Equitas Health; Planned Parenthood; and Stonewall Columbus.
Please come out and support. The event is free; however, registration is recommended. Visit http://bit.ly/2jfkzIC or call 614.629.0359 to RSVP.
