Visual AIDS announces Being & Belonging, a program of seven short videos highlighting under-told stories of HIV and AIDS from the perspective of artists living with HIV across the world. Being & Belonging will premiere at over 100 museums and arts organizations on December 1, 2022 for Day With(out) Art / World AIDS Day. Being & Belonging will feature newly commissioned work by:


Camila Arce (Argentina)

Davina “Dee” Conner and Karin Hayes (USA)

Jaewon Kim (South Korea)

Clifford Prince King (USA)

Santiago Lemus and Camilo Acosta Huntertexas (Colombia)

Mikiki (Canada)

Jhoel Zempoalteca and La Jerry (México)


From navigating sex and intimacy to confronting stigma and isolation, Being & Belonging centers the emotional realities of living with HIV today. How does living with HIV shift the ways that a person experiences, asks for, or provides love, support, and belonging? The seven videos are a call for belonging from those that have been stigmatized within their communities or left out of mainstream HIV/AIDS narratives. The artists in this year’s program were selected through an open call process juried by curator and writer Nico Wheadon, filmmaker Jorge Bordello, artist and curator Ezra Benus, and cultural consultant and health activist Lauraberth Lima. The hour-long video program will premiere on December 1, 2022, World AIDS Day/Day With(out) Art. Visual AIDS partners with museums, galleries, universities, and organizations around the world to present over one hundred free screenings on/around December 1.
