For this year’s Day With(out) Art, we're presenting a program of shorts, Everyone I Know Is Sick, 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 on December 1. Everyone I Know Is Sick generates connections between HIV and other forms of illness and disability. Inspired by a statement from Cyrée Jarelle Johnson in the book Black Futures, Everyone I Know Is Sick examines how our society excludes disabled and sick people by upholding a false separation of health and sickness. Inviting us to understand disability as a common experience rather than an exception to the norm, the program highlights a range of experiences spanning HIV, COVID, mental health, and aging. The commissioned artists foreground the knowledge and expertise of disabled and sick people in a world still grappling with multiple ongoing pandemics. (60 mins., DCP)
Everyone I Know Is Sick features newly commissioned short videos by artists working across the world: Dorothy Cheung (Hong Kong) Hiura Fernandes and Lili Nascimento (Brazil) Beau Gomez (Canada/Philippines) Dolisssa Medina and Ananias P. Soria (United States) Vasilios Papapitsios (United States)Kurt Weston (United States)
The artists in this year’s program were selected through an open call process juried by writer Kimberly Drew and artists Marguerite Van Cook, Charan Singh, and Pato Hebert.
Join us after the screening for informal conversation and gathering organized by student group 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.
