The exhibition is curated by Conrad Ventur for Visual AIDS.

“I’ve learned that we have to find our own saviors. For me, I like to create a fantasy, and one of the ways I’ve found beauty is by stacking beads on top of each other. I usually work in circles and let time shape the work…

“I guess I choose shoes as a vehicle to adorn myself, to give off different identities… The shoes are very organic. I actually see them grow. It pushes me to want to learn more about weight and design, to push them into new forms. But I also want them to design themselves in a way.” — Raúl de Nieves

In conjunction with ALTERED AFTER, Anthology Film Archives and Visual AIDS present RECORD TIME, a free evening of films and videos on August 8, curated by Carmel Curtis and Leeroy Kun Young Kang.

The program includes SOMETHING FIERCE (1989)—Greg Bordowitz and Jean Carlomusto’s video for Gay Men’s Health CrisisColin Campbell’s SKIN (1990), Nguyen Tan Hoang’s K.I.P.
