Day Without Art Day

December 1st marks Day Without Art, coinciding with World AIDS Day. Originating in America in 1989, this day symbolizes the profound impact of the AIDS epidemic on the artistic community and commemorates efforts in combating AIDS. On this occasion, artists and art institutions close their doors, dim lights, and veil their works, replacing them with informative posters about AIDS. Some host screenings of films and documentaries online and in theaters. Day Without Art is also a day of remembrance, with memorials being a significant component of the proceedings.
