ARTISTS ACTION AROUND AIDS (article first published : 2004-06-28)

The Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg is currently hosting an exhibition titled Artists Action Around AIDS. This collection of artworks in a diverse range of media explores the role of the visual arts in the struggle against the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

The exhibition reflects on the contradictions and paradoxes of a disease that evokes fear, stigma, alienation and isolation on the one hand. It also manifests emotional and social reponses of celebration, courage, determination, hope, faith and social upliftment.

The exhibition is curated by Bren Brophy from HIVAN, The Centre for HIV/AIDS Networking, and is sponsored by Artists for Human Rights Trust and Elliot Interational.
