You Are Not Alone
Author: Juan Vicente Aliaga and others
Fundació Joan Miró, 2011
The Fundació Joan Miró, the Museo de Arte Contemporánea, Vigo (MARCO) and the ArtAids Foundation presented You Are Not Alone, an exhibition curated by Hilde Teerlinck, director of FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais/Dunkerque and Irene Aristizábal. The exhibition had the support and involves the collaboration of Mr Han Nefkens and was sponsored by Fundació Banc Sabadell.
You are not alone was intended to prompt reflection on the discrimination and stigmatisation to which, even today, AIDS sufferers are subject. Although medical advances have increased the expectancy and quality of life of sufferers, at least in the developed world, this progress has not been reflected in a reduction in the social rejection they experience. In You are not alone, 14 artists from around the world helped to fight stigmatisation by reappraising the causes, consequences and current context of Aids as well as the ways of fighting it.
