The Washington, DC premiere of Being and Belonging, a program of seven short videos from VisualAIDS highlighting under-told stories of HIV and AIDS from the perspective of artists living with HIV across the world, will be screened from American University’s Humanities Truck at the Studio House at Walbridge in Mount Pleasant on December 1, from 6-8 pm.
The David Bethuel Jamieson Studio House at Walbridge will be open for “DBJamieson: 1991-92 REDUX,” a look back at the African American artist’s last year working from home before succumbing to AIDS-related causes in a loft in New York City, July 30, 1992. The Humanities Truck, an experimental mobile platform for collecting, exhibiting, preserving, and expanding dialogue invites the community to come together for Being & Belonging. Post-screening will be led by Peter Stebbins with an emphasis on the Names Project, Block 4395. Special guests include Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, performing Names and other songs, written for the AIDS memorial quilt. We invite the public to make a panel.
