poster/VIRUS: Artists Affected by HIV Use Images to Make Daring Statements

2 Years of Posters From a Toronto Street Campaign by Canada's AIDS Action Now

November 15, 2013


AIDS Action ...

"AIDS Action ..." 2012

Micah Lexier With Darien Taylor and Eric Mykhalovskiy

Utilizing his trademark techniques of found imagery, simplicity and repetition, Micah Lexier has created a poster that addresses the decidedly unsexy, but complex issue of access to treatment. Quality of care, accuracy of information, even access to treatment itself is dependent on a myriad of factors, both personal and practical. Lexier was tasked with the challenge to create a poster that itemized a number of these extenuating circumstances. Playing with duplication and a simple color inversion, Lexier riffs on AIDS Action Now's dated but indelible logo to focus on the simple but nuanced message that access to treatment is not equal for all.
