This painting is called ‘Aids is Fun’ and is by Derek Jarman, who died of AIDS in 1994. As some know, I have issues with the promiscuous nature in the gay community, especially when quite a lot of men do not even bother with contraception. This post will show you what can happen to you if you get AIDS.

I saw this painting when gay artist Sunil Gupta talked me through it’s horrific backstory at the Queer and Now exhibition at the Tate, in 20171. This was one of the final paintings that Derek Jarman managed to create before his premature death. The virus not only caused him to deteriorate at a painfully slow rate, but it attacked his nervous system and his vision. When he was making this painting, he couldn’t stop shaking / staggering and he was almost blind.
The text in the paintings reads “BLIND FAIL”, “ATAXIA” “AIDS IS FUN”, and “LET’S FUCK”. Each text has their own deeper, and more frightening meaning - you can find out more about this in the Tate website.
Hopefully this’ll make some gay men think twice before they choose to have unprotected sex. I for one have a rule where I only have protected sex - and that’s an end to it. It just takes one mistake to end up like Derek Jarman... #aidsisfun #sunilgupta #derekjarman #tatebritain #queerandnow #tbt #safetyfirst #usecondoms #safesex #safesexisgreatsex

Raju, from Mr. Malhotra’s Party series, 2007. Inkjet print. Sunil Gupta. ‘Now people are meeting less in parks etc, and more on the net, and in places like "private" parties. I am trying to visualise this latest virtual queer space by a series of portraits of 'real' people who identify their sexuality as 'queer' in some way. This time they are willing to identify themselves. They are guests of an imaginary party, I'm calling it "Mr Malhotra's Party".
Gay nights at local clubs in Delhi are always sign-posted as private parties in a fictitious person's name to get around the law; Section 377, a British colonial law, which still criminalises homosexuality in India. Mr Malhotra is is the ubiquitous Punjabi refugee who arrived post partition and contributed to the development of the city.’-sunilgupta.net #SunilGupta #MrMalhotrasParty #LGBT2QplusSpectrum2018 #payingattentionelementsofthinking #PersonalAndPublic

Why a last minute decision to go and see some art will pick your day up? Because after 10 min in you get grabbed by an archivist who will give you a beautifully, inspiring talk about "Ophelia", for free, right there, in front of the painting. Because as you wander around you will find, hanging on the wall, some of your Kingston former teacher's work. Beacuse you will discover new artists that will warm your heart! #ophelia #sunilgupta #lisabrice #tatebritain

“In his romantic world, he is reading Victor Hugo, trying to overcome his linguistic and cultural barriers. However, in the bath house he finds a kind of democracy as communication does not involve speech and everyone wears the same blue towel.” — Sunil Gupta
