DC-based Fathom Creative and Transformer Gallery are teaming up with Visual AIDS, an organization that uses art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue and supporting artists, to bring a former New York exhibition to the neighborhood.

The exhibition, ReMixed Messages, explores the personal and political dichotomies of HIV/AIDS. The show highlights more than 30 text-based works from local and internationally recognized artists that reflect reactions to, and connections through, HIV/AIDS across generations.

The exhibition is free and open to the public; it will run from July 24 through August 4 at Fathom Gallery (1333 14th Street NW). The opening reception is on Tuesday, July 24 from 7 until 9 pm and the closing reception will take place on Thursday, August 2 from 6 until 8 pm. Hours: Tuesday, July 24 through Friday, July 27, 2 to 6 pm; Saturday, July 28, noon to 6 pm; Tuesday, July 31 through Saturday, August 4, 11 am to 3 pm.

Some of the exhibition’s featured artists include Tim Tate, Linda Hesh, Maggie Michael, John Giorno, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Yoko Ono, Jack Pierson, David Wojnarowicz, Kay Rosen and Rob Wynne. First presented at La MaMa La Galleria in New York in 2011, this DC exhibition, curated by John Chaich, coincides with the 2012 International AIDS Conference, which takes place in DC this July.

The Logan Circle Community Association (LCCA) and Accordia Global Health Foundation have both provided support for the exhibition.
