Art AIDS America ran from December 1, 2016 (World AIDS Day) through April 2, 2017, at the Alphawood Gallery in Chicago. We wish to express our deep gratitude to the thousands of people who visited this remarkable exhibition, as well as the many people and institutions that helped make it possible. Please explore our Exhibition website, which is preserved here. Among many other resources, the website contains video documentation of some of the extraordinary programs that took place over the course of the exhibition.
A catalogue of the Chicago version of Art AIDS America will be published later in 2018. This will be a companion volume to the original catalogue published by Tacoma Art Museum and the University of Washington Press, and will highlight the additional works added for the Chicago presentation as well as the extensive programming organized by Alphawood Gallery during the exhibition.
