To commemorate World AIDS Day (Dec 1) and the critical history of artists raising HIV/AIDS awareness, we invite you to consider the role of protest art today. How does the intersection of arts, activism, and protest play out in museums and other arts institutions? Can protest (or dissent) be authentically supported and uplifted in the museum space?
