    ACT UP New York: Activism, Art, and the AIDS Crisis, 1987–1993

    Gallery Talk by Helen Molesworth, exhibition co-curator and Houghton Curator of Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museum/Fogg Museum

    This talk will explore posters, stickers, and public art projects made by art collectives that emerged out of New York’s AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP). Powerful graphics helped transform entrenched ideas about sexuality and played an enormous role in changing legal policy and medical practice.

    Free admission.
    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion.
    Meet in the Sert Gallery, second floor.
