Art for Aids.

1986. Twenty-seven assorted art pieces, including xerographs, lithographs, mixed-media collages, and prints, accompany nine text pieces to present an alternative catalogue of the early years of the AIDS epidemic. The book supplemented the exhibition, “Art for AIDS: A Creative Response to Crisis,” which took place from October 10 to November 7, 1986. It replaced the usual catalogue raisonné, flouting what often is a marketing opportunity in order to involve a broader range of artists and voices addressing what was already a frightening and devastating public health emergency. The exhibited artists invited contributions from anyone, and accepted all of them with no censorship. The result is a remarkable and emotional tour through anger, despair, beauty, activism, love, and grief.
