“this year we wanted to continue the precedent we’ve set in working with a dedicated non-profit organization whose mission has had a true impact in the lives of many,” said jeff lawson, founder of untitled. “for more than 20 years, acria has been championed tirelessly by the visual arts community for its role in transforming lives and communities affected by hiv and aids across the u.s. and around the world. for this reason, we wanted to support acria’s cause and help advocate its essential efforts.”
“through the generosity of its founding board members, acria has received unparalleled support from the art and design world,” said benjamin anderson bashein, executive director of acria. “we are honored to be a part of untitled. in its third edition, and thank them for their support of our mission. we also thank ryan mcginley and team gallery for their generosity. together, we will continue to fight hiv and aids and will continue to save lives.”
in addition to the special edition photograph by ryan mcginley, acria will present other objects and prints for sale in its booth at untitled., including a new edition by jack pierson
