"BODIES OF RESISTANCE:"
2000-07-02 until 2000-07-20
NSA Gallery
Durban, , ZA South Africa

BODIES OF RESISTANCE is the first major contemporary art exhibition in ten years to reconsider the AIDS pandemic. More importantly, it is the first significant art initiative to question the global impact of the disease, and the complex relationships between the West and the developing world regarding AIDS. Fifteen new works have been produced specifically for the exhibition by artists based in South Africa, the UK and the USA, and originally from Canada, Cuba, Hong Kong, India, and Nigeria. This exhibition is curated by Barbara Hunt (USA) reconsidering the global AIDS pandemic, organised by VISUAL AIDS (USA) collaborating with Real Art Ways, to coincide with the XIII International AIDS Conference, Durban July 9 - 14, 2000.

Bodies of Resistance raises pertinent questions about the spread of HIV/AIDS locally, nationally and globally, and considers the implications of the continuing pandemic as we move into the next millennium. The project provides a creative forum through which audiences can explore their own questions and fears related to HIV/AIDS.

Barbara Hunt is an independent curator, lecturer and arts administrator. She was born in Wegberg, W Germany and grew up in England. She currently resides in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She received a postgraduate diploma in Gallery and Museum studies at the University of Manchester, England and a BA in Visual and Performed Arts at the University of Kent at Canterbury, England. She has been the Executive Director of Visual AIDS for the past two and a half years. Since January 1st, Barbara has been Executive Director of Artists Space in New York City.

Bodies of Resistance is funded in part by: the British Council, the Debs Foundation, the Mary J. Hutchins Foundation, the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, the Robert D. Farber Foundation and the Kettering Family Foundation
