Derrick Woods-Morrow: Much handled things are always soft
Jan 8 - Jan 18, 2020
December 6, 2019 - February 20, 2020

MOCA is proud to partner with Visual AIDS for the 30th annual Day With(out) Art by presenting STILL BEGINNING, a program of seven newly commissioned videos which respond to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic by artists Shanti Avirgan, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Carl George, Viva Ruiz, Iman Shervington, Jack Waters/Victor F.M. Torres, and Derrick Woods-Morrow. The short videos range in subject from anti-stigma work in New Orleans to public sex culture in Chicago, highlighting pioneering AIDS activism and staging intergenerational conversations, and will be available to view on from December 6 through February 20. The video program resists narratives of resolution or conclusion, considering the continued urgency of HIV/AIDS in the contemporary moment while revisiting resonant cultural histories from the past three decades. STILL BEGINNING will be screened at over 100 institutions worldwide in order to recognize the important and necessary work of artists, activists, and cultural workers who have responded to AIDS while emphasizing the persistent presence of the epidemic. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the artists Nguyen Tan Hoang and Iman Shervington and will be moderated by Pato Hebert, an educator, artist, and HIV worker.
