NOMA is proud to partner with @visual_aids for Day With(out) Art 2022 by presenting BEING & BELONGING, a program of seven new videos centering the emotional reality of living with HIV today.

The program features new work by Clifford Prince King, Jaewon Kim, Mikiki, Davina “Dee” Conner & Karin Hayes, Camila Arce, Jhoel Zempoalteca & La Jerry, and Camilo Acosta Huntertexas & Santiago Lemus.

A day of mourning and action that uses art to respond to the ongoing HIV and AIDS crisis, Day With(out) Art encourages museums, universities, museums, and art institutions to present related programming on or around December 1, World AIDS Day. AIDS is not over!

The seven short videos will screen on a loop all day today, December 1, in NOMA’s Lapis Center for the Arts. Admission to this program is free for all.

From 1948 to 1986, Reverend Henry Clay Anderson and his wife Sadie Lee operated Anderson Photo Service, an important community hub and business in Greenville, Mississippi.⁠

“Rev. Henry Clay Anderson’s portrait of the young woman displays her fragility and softness. I imagine her sitting proudly in the photo studio that day because her dress was her Sunday’s Best that her mother laid out for her that morning. Her hair had just been pressed and curled the night before and she was excited to show it off for her very first portraiture session. The photo reminds me of a portrait that an elder would show me to reference how they looked in their younger days. A photo like this is a reflection of who we are, who we will be, and our ancestors abroad. A photo has always been a way to freeze time, and capture the essence of a moment that can never be duplicated. I imagine that today, a replica of this photo sits in the home of a great-granddaughter or relative of the subject in remembrance of them.” —Delaney George, photographer and exhibition advisory group member for "Called to the Camera: Black American Studio Photographers"⁠
