Screening on a looping presentation
Beeler Gallery screening room
In solidarity with Visual AIDS for Day With(out) Art, Beeler Gallery presents ALTERNATE ENDINGS, ACTIVIST RISINGS, which highlights the impact of art in AIDS activism and advocacy today by commissioning compelling short videos from six inspiring community organizations and collectives—ACT UP NY, Positive Women’s Network, Sero Project, The SPOT, Tacoma Action Collective, and VOCAL NY. The program represents a wide range of organizational strategies, from direct action to grassroots service providers to nation-wide movement building, while considering the role of creative practices in activist responses to the ongoing AIDS crisis. This event is free and open to the public.
Tyler Coburn: Richard Roe
A reading and the unveiling of an orchid.
Richard Roe is a multi-part work, comprising an orchid hybrid named by New York-based artist Tyler Coburn and a “memoir” of a legal person. The project builds on a convention particular to Singapore, wherein orchid hybrids are named after politicians and celebrities—in effect, as a means of cultural diplomacy.
Season One includes additional programming informed by the intersection of art and politics, the 2nd edition of An Art Book Affair, and the Visiting Artist & Scholars Series organized in collaboration with CCAD’s Graduate Studies program and CCAD’s Schools of Studio Arts and Design Arts.
