Keith Haring Joseph Modica

Marc Arthur curated this month's web gallery, Viral Images, featuring John Kelly, Ray Navarro, Jessica Whitbread, Curtis Carman, David Wojnarowicz, Gordon Kurtti, Benjamin Fredrickson, Robert Getso, W. Benjamin Incerti, Joseph Modica, Hunter Reynolds, Peter Cramer, Kia LaBeija, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Tseng Kwong Chi, Jose Luis Cortes, Mark Morrieroe, Juan Arce, Kissa Millar and Jimmy De Sana.

Arthur says, "At Performa, my role as an archivist is complicated by the inherent ephemerality of performance and the fact that performance never has a singular source of documentation. Instead, documentation comes as photographs, video, objects and ephemera; the total sum of which challenge the idea of a finalized document. Spanning from the 70’s to the present, I've curated this web gallery out of my understanding of performance as something that is not easily captured and that is documented in various forms. I've included works of activism, nightlife and photography that don’t explicitly depict live performance." Read more.

Each month, Visual AIDS invites guest curators, drawn from both the arts and AIDS communities, to select several works from the Frank Moore Archive Project and Visual AIDS Artists Registry.
