    Art for AIDS.

    Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS [UNAIDS]

    Geneva, Switzerland, UNAIDS, 2007 Jun. 174 p. (UNAIDS/07.14E; JC1312E)

    The United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) commemorated its 10th anniversary in 2006. In November 2006 UNAIDS moved into its new headquarters in Geneva, a building it shares with the World Health Organization. For UNAIDS, this new space is a convening centre for increased dialogue on AIDS issues and a centre for Art for AIDS. The building is both modern and organic-with the theme of permeability. Art is the focal point in the minimalist setting. Art has played a central role in the response to AIDS. From AIDS quilts in America to memory books in Africa, from painting, multi-media to sculpture - AIDS has influenced art and the artistic world. The UNAIDS ART for AIDS collection are museum quality pieces that provoke thought and dialogue. With an initial emphasis on African art and artists, the pieces have been assembled through the generous support of artists, collectors and donors. (excerpt)
