Pandemic:Imaging AIDS presents stories of women and men around the world who live with the disease that has defined the last quarter century. The goal of the project is to create greater awareness and understanding of HIV/AIDS and the challenges we must face in combating its spread. The exhibition not only illuminates the struggle, the tragedies, and triumphs against the epidemic, it will also reveal the range of responses to a disease that has thoroughly altered the way we look at life, the body, and personal relationships.
From documentary to artistic to political, the 124 works by 100 international artists representing fifty countries presented in this exhibition memorializes the unfathomable loss to the disease, yet also records how imaging AIDS has also galvanized change and provided both information and sustenance in the face of tragedy.
