UCLA Hammer Screenings: Untitled (World AIDS Day)

UCLA Hammer Museum
12/02/2011 11:00 AM

 

Presented in conjunction with World AIDS Day/Day With(out) Art by Visual AIDS

 

Untitled presents a nonlinear montage of footage to conjure up the passionate activism sparked by the early years of the AIDS crisis. Created by artist Jim Hodges and filmmakers Carlos Marques da Cruz and Encke King, Untitled melds together media from a multitude of sources including archival activist footage, news broadcasts, and popular TV and film. By juxtaposing fractious scenes from the last few turbulent decades, Untitled presents a provocative reflection on an era when political protest and personal existence converged. (2011, Dir. Jim Hodges, Carlos Marques da Cruz, Encke King. 60 min)

 

The video will be screened every hour on the hour from 11am–6pm.

 

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.
