Messages from a Pandemic: AIDS Posters from the Wolfsonian Collection
Date: Thursday, May 20, 2021
Location: Coral Gables Museum @ 285 Aragon Avenue + Zoom
The life-saving, complex, and sometimes contradictory public health messaging of the HIV/AIDS epidemic is the subject of this timely program featuring Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab deputy director Dr. Julio Capó, Jr. and Wolfsonian curator Shoshana Resnikoff. Unpacking the visual design strategies found in AIDS awareness posters from The Wolfsonian's extensive collection, Capó and Resnikoff will address some of the themes present in the selections on view in two current exhibitions: the Coral Gables Museum's A Matter of Time: Examining Forty Years of AIDS While Living through a Pandemic, and a Wolfsonian virtual exhibition, Messages from a Pandemic.
Co-presented with Coral Gables Museum and The Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab.
