Mixed Messages presents over forty text-based works by visual artists and designers whose reactions to and connections through HIV/AIDS reflect the contemporary moment’s tenor on the pandemic. From painting to print, sculpture and installation, the featured works juxtapose publicly intended messages with deeply personal revelations, which are at once polemic and poetic, positive and negative, both in tone and form.
Mixed Messengers Talk – A panel discussion among the creative teams behind recent HIV prevention campaigns.
