In the Power of Your Care was an exhibition about health and health care as human rights, and the interdependencies of care in our culture, from personal relationships to systems of care in a policy context. Addressing issues such as the FDA’s ban on gay and bisexual blood donations (which was partially lifted in December of 2015), the politics of institutionalized care in the contexts of hospitalization and military detention, as well the challenges posed by medical treatment of diseases like breast cancer and HIV, In the Power of Your Care proposed that health as a human right can be upheld through both community-based efforts and policy change. The exhibition was on view from April 19, 2016 to August 12, 2016.
