Following on the success of their Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture, curatorial partners Rock Hushka (Tacoma Art Museum chief curator) and Dr. Jonathan D. Katz are opening Art AIDS America before a national tour. Dubbed art made “pre-cocktail” and “post-cocktail” (referring to the medicine that slowed the disease), this huge 30-year survey of AIDS art is another lively free-for-all mixture of celebration and grief, defiance and subversion, anger and joy.

The art is also split between AIDS-specific art and AIDS-subtle or symbolic art. Another equitable split is between well-known and unknown artists. Keith Haring, Nayland Blake and Judy Chicago meet Pacifico Silano and Hugh Steers. Pacific Northwest artists Charles LeDray, Michael Ehle, Jim Hodges, Keith Lewis, Steven Miller and Martin Wong more than hold up their end of regional representation.

Photographers Nan Goldin, Robert Mapplethorpe and Duane Michals cover the seedy underside of AIDS, while Haring’s prints and limited-edition bronzes look surprisingly fresh. One must admit how deep and wide AIDS’s influence has been as an instigator of political action through artistic practice. Every imaginable genre is included in this exhibition, highlighting the mélange of high and low, class and sleaze that typified the AIDS crisis.
