Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. Founded in 1988, Visual AIDS is the only contemporary arts organization fully committed to raising AIDS awareness and creating dialogue around HIV issues today, by producing and presenting visual art projects, exhibitions, public forums and publications - while assisting artists living with HIV and AIDS.

The Visual AIDS Vanguard Awards (VAVA) recognize the achievements and contributions of individuals who, through their work, talent and dedication, strengthen the cultural history of art, AIDS and activism in our community - and reinforce the mission of Visual AIDS. We honor their commitment to art activism, AIDS advocacy, HIV prevention, education and their support of artists with HIV/AIDS. A special VAVA is presented each year to an individual in the creative arts living with HIV, and is named in honor of William Olander, the late New Museum curator and co-founder of Visual AIDS.

This year, Visual AIDS invites you to join us on June 28th for our VAVA VOOM benefit, as we honor activist filmmakers Jean Carlomusto and Tom Kalin, Icon of the House of Ninja Milton Garcia Ninja, and artist Frank Moore (1953-2002), the founder of the Visual AIDS archive. Their dedication, passion and creativity have strengthened all of our communities and speak to the heart of Visual AIDS’ mission. Click here to learn more and buy tickets.
