This month Marisa Cardinale curated Take With Food, featuring Valerie Caris Blitz, Chuck Nanney, Mooshka, Joseph Modica, Frank Moore, Joe Brainard, Frederick Weston, Jonathan Leiter, Eric Rhein, and David Wojnarowicz.

Cardinale says, "I approached my visit to the Visual AIDS archive with some trepidation but a firmly open mind. I knew I would see work by friends who had died. When that happens by chance, maybe turning a corner at an exhibition, or catching sight of a title on the spine of a book in a store, or once on the T-shirt of a young person walking toward me on the street, when it comes upon me without warning like that, I feel like a movie character in a time machine."

Each month, Visual AIDS invites guest curators, drawn from both the arts and AIDS communities, to select several works from the Frank Moore Archive Project and Visual AIDS Artists Registry. View past Web Gallery here.
