In conjunction with The House Is Small, a project of Venice Arts, Exit Art presents The House Is Small but the Welcome Is Big, an exhibition of recent photography by 15 people from Mozambique and South Africa affected by HIV/AIDS.

Children from Maputo, Mozambique, orphaned by AIDS, and HIV-positive women in Cape Town, South Africa were given cameras by Venice Arts, a non-profit media arts organization in Venice, California devoted to social art initiatives.

The photographs are tragic and hopeful, lively and compelling. Some are difficult to look at. All of them are hard to dismiss.

Curated by The House Is Small co-founders, Neal Baer, Jim Hubbard and Lynn Warshafsky.
