Printed Matter’s LA ART BOOK FAIR, free and open to the public. It’s three full, fun packed days.
Our panel is Saturday 3:00 – 4:00 pm
DUETS book launch with Annie Sprinkle, Ben Cuevas, and Beth Stephens, presented by Visual AIDS
To launch DUETS: Ben Cuevas & Annie Sprinkle in Conversation, the latest volume of Visual AIDS’ DUETS publication series, artists Annie Sprinkle, Ben Cuevas and Beth Stephens engage in a conversation moderated by Visual AIDS Associate Director Esther McGowan on art, knitting, postporn, ecosex, HIV, love, loss, risk, activism, feminism, go-go dancing, orgasms, humor, death and more. As a queer, male-bodied, HIV-positive artist, Cuevas’ work challenges viewers’ fears of HIV and helps revive a queer culture lost to AIDS and gentrification. Annie Sprinkle and her collaborative partner Beth Stephens join the conversation to discuss their longterm work at the forefront of art and performance, provoking sex-positive practices and activism as well as pollinating ecosexual art and theory around the planet.
