J Triangular is our seventh Curatorial Resident, co-sponsored with Residency Unlimited. J Triangular is a Colombia-born, Taiwan-based curator and artist.

During their residency, J is creating a weekly episodic video program called THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING, a weekly webseries that responds to the lack of critical attention given to women living with HIV. Each episode features activists and artists in New York City discussing their work and the ongoing urgency of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, centering queer voices and women of color.


In this episode, Lina Meruane (writer), Katherine Cheairs (filmmaker) and Wanda Hernández-Parks (activist) discuss their work around women living with HIV. The video begins with a discussion of "Female Disappearance Syndrome," or the lack of representation of women in narratives about HIV/AIDS, and continues to consider how the state exacerbates health inequalities through exile, criminalization, and incarceration, ending with a reflection on the ongoing work of activists fighting to end the epidemic.

On Saturday March 30, J will host a live taping of the fourth episode of THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING at DCTV, featuring critical conversation and live music. More info here.
