“Danspace Project to Launch Largest Curatorial Project in its History” (Artforum, July 14, 2016)
Curated by Ishmael Houston-Jones and Will Rawls, the program will reflect on the AIDS hysteria of 1981 to 1996 through a presentation of performances, conversations, film screenings, a print catalogue, a zine project, and a vigil that will take place from October 13 to November 19. Houston-Jones asked, “How is one able to, or can one, explain the pain, confusion, rage, and fear that HIV/AIDS caused a whole generation?” He added that the series will “try to recover the generation of mentors, role models, and muses” who died from the disease.
