ACT UP Exhibit Opens in New York

Last night marked the opening of ACT UP NEW YORK: Activism, Art, and the AIDS Crisis at the White Columns art space in the West Village. The new exhibit follows the history of ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) throughout the AIDS activism movement of the 80s and 90s. The show features graphic and visual media work by art collectives associated with the coalition, including Gran Fury, Silence = Death Project, Gang, DIVA TV, and fierce pussy. Also included is the premiere of the ACT UP Oral History Project, a collection of video interviews with ACT UP’s surviving members. The show, which runs through October 23rd, provides rare insight into an important period of the gay rights movement and shouldn’t be missed. White Columns is located at 320 West 13th Street, with an entrance on Horatio Street, and is open Tuesday-Saturday from 12-6 P.M.
