CULTUREPLEX and Superbia, the programme of arts and culture from Manchester Pride, are proud to partner with Visual AIDS New York for the 30th annual Day With(out) Art by presenting STILL BEGINNING, a program of seven newly commissioned videos responding to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic, by Shanti Avirgan, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Carl George, Viva Ruiz, Iman Shervington, Jack Waters/Victor F.M. Torres, and Derrick Woods-Morrow.

The films cover subjects from anti-stigma work to public sex culture, highlighting pioneering activism and staging intergenerational conversations. The films aim to resist narratives of resolution or conclusion, considering the continued urgency of contemporary HIV/AIDS while revisiting resonant cultural histories.

Introduced by Greg Thorpe of Superbia with time for conversation and reflection afterwards.

Visual AIDS is a New York-based non-profit that utilises art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over.

Day With(out) Art is an annual event using the arts to draw attention to HIV and AIDS. In 1989, Visual AIDS organised the first Day Without Art, a call to the art world for mourning and action in response to the AIDS crisis. Over 100 institutions worldwide will screen STILL BEGINNING.

Running time: 75 mins
