Day With(out) Art 2023: Everyone I Know Is Sick

Friday, December 1, 7 pm
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

In tandem with Visual AIDS,  AGO marks Day With(Out) Art 2023 with a program of five videos generating connections between HIV and other forms of illness and disability. Inspired by a statement from Cyrée Jarelle Johnson in the book Black Futures, Everyone I Know Is Sick examines how our society excludes disabled and sick people by upholding a false dichotomy of health and sickness. The commissioned artists foreground the knowledge and expertise of disabled and sick people in a world still grappling with multiple ongoing pandemics. 

Everyone I Know Is Sick will features short videos newly commissioned by Visual AIDS from artists working across the world: Dorothy Cheung (Hong Kong), Hiura Fernandes & Lili Nascimento (Brazil), Beau Gomez (Canada/Philippines), Dolissa Medina & Ananias P. Soria (USA), Vasilios Papapitsios (USA), Kurt Weston (USA).
