If you are in the NYC area from May 11th to June 24th, be sure to see the new summer exhibition by Visual AIDS —“NO BIOS”. It is a group art show curated by Isis Awad with drawings, paintings, sculptures, and video from three generations of artists. It features artwork (including never-before-exhibited pieces) by Jerome Caja (1958–1995), Chloe Dzubilo (1960–2011), Stevie Cisneros Hanley, Reverend Joyce McDonald, Sofia Moreno, Pamela Sneed, Tabboo!, and D’Angelo Lovell Williams.
See logistics and programing below.
Big thanks to Isis Awad and Visual AIDS for including Jerome in this really special exhibition. This type of East Coast visibility for Jerome is so important, especially now, 28 years after Jerome’s death, when he was just on the cusp of national recognition.
Over the years, The Jerome Project and the estate have been working closely with Visual AIDS to insert Jerome back into the contemporary art narrative, give Jerome’s art the visibility it deserves, and reach the widest possible audience —“NO BIOS” does this!
Lastly, if you want to support both Jerome and Visual AIDS, then treat yourself to this lovely chapbook DUETS: Nayland Blake & Justin Vivian Bond In Conversation on Jerome Caja that Visual AIDS produced a few years back. There are still a few left in stock and it is a real gem.
