All day screening
Every hour on the hour in the Exhibition Lab on the mezzanine level
The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis is pleased to present Untitled in conjunction with World AIDS Day. With a run time of 60 minutes, the film will start every hour on the hour.
Untitled is a non-linear montage of archival and pop footage recalling the passionate activism sparked by the early years of the AIDS crisis. Un-spooling at multiple levels, the narrative flies between scenes of tragic brutality to kitschy humor, arch clips of laughter and ironic surprises while shredding traditional chronology. Many references — the title, short excerpts from Golden Girls and Dynasty, popular songs, and contemporary issues — nod towards Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s oeuvre, but the film is not an attempt to portray the artist; rather, it places the viewer “in his room.” In this way, the framing of the artist becomes a means to project any number of people, endlessly.

Also in conjunction with World AIDS Day, CAM will be accepting donations of canned goods December 1-8. All donations will benefit Food Outreach.
