to Sun 18 Aug 2019

Altered After, curated by Conrad Ventur for Visual AIDS, presents artworks that incorporate archives, archaeology, memory, salvaged objects, material migrations, inherited knowledge, and bequests in response to HIV/AIDS.


For these artists, stewarding material remnants and activating new meaning from them is a form of care and also a call to bring new engagement and life to what has been lost and left behind. Their practices build bonds of kinship and give form to legacies and personal histories. The artists in Altered After are field guides reporting between worlds through paint, movement, video and film, light and chemistry, plants, everyday materials, thread, stone, pebbles, and clay.
