AIDS OS Y Version 10.11.6 (Zine produced by Allied Productions)

Founded in 1980 by Jack Waters and Peter Cramer, Allied Productions helped give a start to pioneering non-profits like ABC No Rio on the Lower East Side in 1983. Recently, Allied Productions’ main project has been the development and maintenance of Le Petit Versailles Community Garden, a formerly abandoned lot in the East Village, which has been home to art exhibitions, performances, readings, and film screenings.

During this “mini residency” Waters and Cramer will assemble a zine project, offer a dance workshop to reconstruct a dance by Brian Taylor (1957 -1992) as well as host a night of live performances, film screenings, and dialogue. The goal of the collective is to help facilitate a platform for building a new language for current and future generations; a vocabulary specific to gender queer post corporate pharma experiences born of the epidemic that are independent of, yet informed by, currently dominant narratives of AIDS/HIV.

Contributors to zine and night of performance include:

In trying to “fill out the gap” left by deaths from AIDS, the zine, as a handmade, grassroots object, will serve as a central metaphor for addressing the ephemeral, fragmentary, and affective documents of a generation of artists. Two artist collectives, Allied Productions (October 18) and AUNTS (November 8) will develop zines and related live presentations addressing how each collective’s artistic practices might be in conversation with the reality and aftermath of the AIDS epidemic in the NYC dance and performance community.
