COMPULSIVE PRACTICE Screening & Day With(out) Art Panel Discussion

COMPULSIVE PRACTICE is an hour-long video compilation of compulsive, daily, and habitual practices by nine artists and activists— Juanita Mohammed, Ray Navarro (1964–1990), Nelson Sullivan (1948–1989), the Southern AIDS Living Quilt, James Wentzy, Carol Leigh aka Scarlot Harlot, Luna Luis Ortiz, Mark S. King, and Justin B. Terry-Smith—who live with their cameras as one way to manage, reflect upon, and change how they are deeply affected by HIV/AIDS. The New Museum premiere event on World AIDS Day, December 1 featured a post-screening discussion with artists Luna Luis Ortiz, James Wentzy, and Carol Leigh moderated by “COMPULSIVE PRACTICE” co-curator and videographer Jean Carlomusto.

In conjunction with STILL BEGINNING: The 30th Annual Day With(out) Art, ICA Philadelphia is proud to host a screening and conversation with Jean Carlomusto, a filmmaker, activist, and interactive media artist whose work conducts unorthodox investigations of LGBT history and HIV/AIDS.
