WORLD AIDS DAY: THEN & NOW

Pre-Show Gallery Exhibit & Reception
December 1 | Thursday | 6:00 p.m.

Beauty. Sex. Loss. Courage. Politics. Much has changed between the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and today, and World AIDS Day is both a marker of remembrance as well as one of celebration. Join us for this joint World AIDS Day event in partnership with ART AIDS AMERICA CHICAGO, a groundbreaking exhibition that underscores the deep and unforgettable presence of HIV in American art. Start the journey with a curated tour of the gallery at its opening night celebration. Then, make your way to the Victory Gardens lobby for pre-show appetizers and spoken word performances before the evening performance of Karen Hartman’s Roz & Ray.
