"When Visual AIDS asked me to curate January’s web gallery, I first thought about the sorts of images I wanted to explore (mostly New York City-based; mostly photography, for its ties to documentation, with some exceptions; and most importantly, they had to depict space in some way). I then spent a few days slowly pouring through the archives, bookmarking images that stood out somehow. The process of curating this gallery was a largely intuitive one, based more in aesthetics and visuals than historical research and facts.

G Trudel collects images from Albert Winn, Daniel Dallabrida, Robert Getso, Leslie Kaliades, Luis Carle, Steed Taylor, Keith Haring, Hugh Steers, Tseng Kwong Chi, George Dinhaupt, John Dugdale, Greg Mitchell, Juan Rivera, and Chloe Dzubilo in this January's web gallery some thoughts / for you.

Each month, Visual AIDS invites guest curators, drawn from both the arts and AIDS communities, to select several works from the Frank Moore Archive Project and Visual AIDS Artists Registry. View past Web Gallery here.
