Curator's Statement:

LIFE MADE STRANGE: OTHERNESS- a "post-Bush mandate era" will generate a response of activist art that may rival the AIDS activism and performance/street art inspired by Reagan Years. Inspired by Dr. Andrew Irving's  doctoral thesis in Anthropology Life Made Strange: How Experiences of HIV/AIDS Affect Perception of Time, Existence and Otherness- this exhibition will reflect the current climate amongst HIV/AIDS visual artists in response to an American mandated election and the months leading up to it.
