After the  reality of the AIDS epidemic dawned upon us in the 1980s, how we perceived sexuality was irreversibly shook. Art AIDS America examines 30 years of artistic production made in response to the AIDS epidemic in the United States. Chronologically exploring art made since the 1980s to the present day, the works show the angrily political, the private grieving and the personal explorations of diagnosis. Besides from the immediate information that the exhibition offers, it will also examine how themes of politics, class and autobiography came into play more strongly within art as a side effect of this catastrophe.

This new exhibition, which opens this evening at the ONE Gallery and the West Hollywood Library is a part of One City One Pride, and it will be presented in two parts. This iteration of the exhibition comprises a select preview of the larger show opening at the Tacoma Art Museum in October 2015.

The exhibition opens to the public tomorrow and will carry on until September the 6th 2015.

Presented in two parts at the ONE Archives Gallery & Museum and the West Hollywood Library:
