We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully. If you have questions about accessibility or require an accommodation such as CART captioning or ASL interpretation to participate in this event, please contact Accessibility Manager Helyn Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone at (614) 688-3890. Requests made by two weeks in advance will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the Wexner Center for the Arts will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
For this year’s Day With(out) Art, we're presenting a program of shorts, Being & Belonging, in partnership with Visual AIDS and Ohio State student group Cinéseries.
Organized by Visual AIDS, Day With(out) Art is an international day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis, coinciding with World AIDS Day. Being & Belonging focuses on the emotional realities of living with HIV today—from navigating sex and intimacy to confronting stigma and isolation. How does living with HIV shift the ways that a person experiences, asks for, or provides love, support, and belonging? The seven videos in this program are a call for belonging from those who have been stigmatized within their communities or left out of mainstream HIV/AIDS narratives.
The artists in this year’s program were selected through an open call process juried by curator and writer Nico Wheadon, filmmaker Jorge Bordello, artist and curator Ezra Benus, and cultural consultant and health activist Lauraberth Lima. Check out the program lineup on the Visual AIDS website. (60 mins., digital video)
Join us in the café after the screening for free refreshments and an informal discussion facilitated by Cinéseries.

In the words of Cinéseries’ members: Cinéseries is a student-led group that organizes monthly screenings in collaboration with the Wexner Center for the Arts. We aim to offer a space for students and the community to engage with film and expanded cinema from makers of a variety of backgrounds. We aspire to create an environment conducive to critical engagement by inviting filmmakers to showcase work that takes risks, challenges norms, and opens a conversation by devoting to a wide range of artist-centered and independent media.
