Please join Art Metropole on the ground floor of the MOCA on Friday, November 23rd from 6pm to 8pm for the launch of The HIV Howler: Transmitting Art and Activism.
The HIV Howler: Transmitting Art and Activism is a limited edition art newspaper focusing on global grassroots HIV art and cultural production. The HIV Howler is a forum for dialogue, a demand for aesthetic self-determination, a response to tokenism, and a guide to navigating the vibrational ambiguities between policy, pathology, and community.
To correspond with The HIV Howler launch, featured artist Andrew Zealley will also be launching Infecting Postal, a new series of four numbered postcards, each in an edition of 100.
This launch will feature readings from Anthea Black and Jessica Whitbread, and a discussion between Anthea Black, Jessica Whitbread, Mikiki, Charles Long, Andrew Zealley, and special guests TBA!
The HIV Howler: Transmitting Art and Activism, Issue 1: Criminalization-Medicalization, Issue 2: Mentor-Mother, and Issue 3: Sex-Pleasure will be available at the launch for $5 each.
Infecting Postal postcards are available individually as well as in sleeved sets of four. Individual cards (#34-100) are priced at $5 each. Sets of four (#1-33) are $20.
