About the Discussion

Whether through catharsis or biopolitical resistance, art has long intertwined with health. Egon Schiele painted himself, his wife, and their unborn child, before all three succumbed to the Spanish Flu. AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) together with arts collective Gran Fury and Visual AIDS demanded national visibility and political action to fight AIDS, inextricably linking art, activism, and public health.

As we face down another pandemic and confront the myriad health disparities that determine how we live and who will die, this panel of experts and artists will discuss the power of art to bring healing, shed light on the myriad of health disparities hindering equitable health outcomes, and expose what lies behind our collective inability in this moment to heal whole.
