A biennial Contemporary art fair benefitting AIDS Action, discover 200+ Contemporary Artworks from international talent at The Castle at Park Plaza.
We were honored to serve as the curatorial chair and co-creative director of ARTcetera.
Alongside our stellar curatorial committee we curated and designed an exciting exhibition featuring an exhibition of 200+ established and bright new art stars.
Our challenge was to expand the artistic palette of the event. Exciting budding, seasoned collectors and philanthropists to #COLLECTWITHINTENTION aiding the important work of AIDS Action. In tandem with the development team we refreshed the identity of this historic event. .
Founded in 1985, by a collective of activist and artists in response to the AIDS epidemic, the legacy of ARTcetera continues to benefit AIDS Action in their mission of getting to zero deaths, zero new infections and zero stigma by 2030.
“The "it" gala for art-loving philanthropists…
this biennial soiree features a stellar auction of contemporary art…Naturally, the objets d’art aren’t the only sculpted visions to behold at this black-tie fete, where aspiring arts-world sensations schmooze their way amid the dandy and gadabout crowd..”
AIDS Action is New England’s largest provider of services to people living with HIV/AIDS and populations at risk of infection. AIDS Action leads the state’s Getting To Zero Coalition, which seeks to reduce the number of HIV infections to zero and operates a needle exchange that serves as an entry point to healthcare services for active substance users.
