To support Reimagining Viral Futures through the Visual AIDS Archive: The Sensory Aesthetics of Ronald Lockett and Robert Farber, a two-day intensive studio convening and public symposium organized in partnership with the nonprofit gallery La MaMa Galleria and the Museum of Modern Art, and centered around the work of two artists lost to the AIDS crisis: Robert Farber (1948–1995) and Ronald Lockett (1965–1998). The event brings together a diverse group of activists, artists, curators, and theorists, who engage with Farber’s and Lockett’s work and elaborate on themes of beauty, ruination, fugitivity, and the gothic. Materials from the convening, symposium, and exhibition, along with access to a special issue of Social Text, are made available online on the Visual AIDS website.
