Art as Health

A Day of Art and HIV Testing

Between noon and 6 P.M. on Thursday, September 12, SDAI is offering free HIV testing, free admission to Forging Territories, free docent-led tours tailored for HIV-impacted individuals and communities, and a 6 P.M. panel discussion featuring artist and HIV activist Joey Terrill.

All elements of the event are open to the entire community and are presented with the generous cooperation of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the AntiViral Research Center at UCSD. While the focus of the panel discussion is Race, HIV, and Art: the Impact of HIV/AIDS on LGBTQ Artists and Communities of Color, the cultural and medical aspects of the virus as well as current methods of testing and treatment will also be discussed.

The evening will conclude with time for Q&A and socializing, with full bar and complimentary refreshments.

Jens Rossen

Oct 5 - Dec 13, 2020

Sparks Gallery is pleased to present a solo show by San Diego artist Jens Rossen. This exhibition, in partnership with Exclusive Collections Gallery, will showcase the artist’s newest body of work titled, “Segues.”

Born in Denmark, Jens Rossen is an expressionist painter whose paintings play on the viewers’ senses, transporting them into the realm of the sublime. Throughout his formative years, Rossen traveled back and forth from Denmark to California, resulting in a depth of influences manifesting itself within his own artwork.

“The obvious influences of de Kooning, Kline and even Pollock are melded together with his Scandinavian sensibility of naturalism so that a fresh new experience is to be found for the viewer in these welcoming, enlightening works of art” – Jamie Ellin Forbes
