Professor Jennifer Brier and History Moves "In Plain Sight" Exhibition opens March 4

Feb 26, 2016

"In Plain Sight" is a public exhibition inspired by an ongoing project called "I'm Still Surviving: A Women's History of HIV/AIDS in the United States."

Professor Brier is the lead historian for the exhibition and book. The project's graphic design was led by Matt Wizinsky, assistant professor of design at the University of Cincinnati.

The exhibition and corresponding project are the result of collaboration between the UIC-based History Moves project and Chicago participants in the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS), a 23-year-old clinical research study on women living with HIV. The "I'm Still Surviving" project recently received funding from MAC AIDS Fund, a foundation of MAC Cosmetics, to expand the public history work to Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Brooklyn, New York.

The exhibition is installed at Pop Up JUST Art Center
1255 S. Halsted Street.

Opening reception: March 4, 5 – 7 p.m.

Exhibition on view: Through April 2, Thursdays, 3 - 6 p.m.; Fridays, 3 – 7 p.m.; and Saturdays, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.   Admission is free and open to the public. Call (312) 413-2458 to arrange group tours.
