Metanoia: Transformation through AIDS Archives
Curated by What Would an HIV AIDS Doula Do? (collective members, Katherine Cheairs, Alexandra Juhasz, Theodore Kerr, Jawanza Williams).
Metanoia: Transformation through AIDS Archives is an archival examination of community-based responses to the ongoing AIDS crisis in the USA. The exhibition’s title, metanoia, is a word of Greek origin expressing the possibility of change through transformation.
The exhibition is rooted in the belief that HIV/AIDS is a powerful agent of change, and that transformation can happen through community, activism, words, sex, care, and the materials that document these efforts. It is being created from the archives of ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at USC Libraries, and the The NY Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.
