World AIDS Day video screening and artist Q&A
Open to the Public
The Middlebury College Museum of Art is proud to partner with Visual AIDS for Day With(out) Art 2020 to present TRANSMISSIONS, a program of six new videos considering the impact of HIV and AIDS beyond the United States. The videos—created by artists working in Chile, Greece, India, Mexico, Uganda, and the United Kingdom—cover a broad range of subjects, such as the erasure of women living with HIV in South America, ineffective Western public health campaigns in India, and the realities of stigma and disclosure for young people in Uganda. As the world continues to adapt to living with a new virus, COVID-19, these videos offer an opportunity to reflect on the resonances and differences between the two epidemics and their uneven distribution across geography, race, and gender. Please note that some videos include sexually explicit content. Free.

November 30 video screening will last approximately one hour and will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with the artists, organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art. For more information—and to watch the videos beginning December 1—visit visualaids.org/transmissions.
This event is co-sponsored by the Middlebury College Museum of Art, the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, Student Friends of the Art Museum, and GlobeMed.
