VOICE = SURVIVAL

 




VOICE = SURVIVAL is an online exhibition that examines voice as a medium and a metaphor used by artists and activists to confront oppression amid the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic. The exhibition resets the iconic SILENCE = DEATH rallying cry, proposing a relationship between vocal empowerment and the fight for individual and communal survival. Ranging from documentary recordings and archival materials to contemporary art, the works presented in the show capture the cultural expressions and interventions employed during the height of AIDS activism, linking to anti-oppression movements before and after the period. The exhibition explores the entanglement of the voice and its absence with battleground concepts in HIV/AIDS activism such as agency and citizenship, language and representation, and inter-subjectivity and the body.

VOICE = SURVIVAL includes work by Andrew Zealley.
