Remembering #worldaidsday2017 at Galerie Richard in my mini-retrospective Computer Virus 1.0 and the Return of Lazarus at 121 Orchard Street in NYC (open Wednesday-Saturday from 12 to 7 pm & Sunday 2 to 6 pm).

World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.
