“While we all welcome the great medical advances that have been made in the treatment of HIV and AIDS, the most effective response remains prevention. Bringing this information to vulnerable young people around the world has been the special mission of RE:DEFINE. This is a cause that deserves everyone’s support,” said 2015 artist honoree Michael Craig-Martin.back to exhibitions
