Everyone I Know Is Sick

Day With(out) Art 2023
Online video programme
Hiura Fernandes i Lili Nascimento, Aquela criança com AID$ 

MACBA is proud to partner with Visual AIDS for Day With(out) Art 2023 by presenting Everyone I Know Is Sick, a programme of five videos that draw connections between HIV and other forms of disease and disability.

The programme features newly commissioned work by Dorothy Cheung (Hong Kong), Hiura Fernandes & Lili Nascimento (Brazil), Beau Gomez (Canada/Philippines), Dolissa Medina & Ananias P. Soria (USA), and Kurt Weston (USA).

Inspired by a statement from Cyrée Jarelle Johnson in the book Black Futures, Everyone I Know Is Sick examines how our society upholds a false dichotomy of health and sickness that marginalises disabled and sick people. Inviting us to understand disability as a common experience rather than an exception to the norm, the programme 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.

Visual AIDS is a New York-based non-profit that uses art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over.
