Scope note(s)

  • February 6 - September 3, 2007. The Village is Tilting: Dancing AIDS in Malawi features a series of masks, photographs, and videos documenting the depth of awareness and cultural response to the AIDS pandemic by rural Malawians. More than a plaintive victim's cry, The Village is Tilting uses elements of Gule Wamkulu itself - dance, drama, dialogue, and humour - to strip away conventional images of AIDS to reveal its inextricable links to an interconnected set of conditions and causes: poverty, gender inequality, and civil injustice. The exhibition is guest curated and assembled by Vancouver-based photographer Douglas Curran, who has documented the Chewa mask culture for over ten years.
