amfAR Celebrates Joseph Kosuth’s “Guests and Foreigners”

No contributor

Last week, amfAR opened its New York offices to donors and art enthusiasts alike, to celebrate exhibition of “Guests and Foreigners’,” a series by artist Joseph Kosuth. The exhibition is presented as a network of texts and archival photographs—all related to amfAR’s mission of eradicating HIV/AIDS through innovative research. A running visual commentary displayed throughout the hallways, lobby, and boardroom of the Foundations’ New York offices. The intricate installation took five studio assistants six weeks to complete, working five days a week.

The installation serves as a visual and narrative history of the AIDS epidemic, with texts and photographs organized for the viewer along a timeline that highlights the programmatic achievements, as well as key events and personalities that have shaped the fight against AIDS. The piece was created and first installed in 1999/2000 and was updated and expanded this year, after renovations to the office called for the work to be deinstalled.

Throughout the evening the offices were filled with a blend of foundation, individual and corporate donors, along with representatives from HBO, and Johnson & Johnson. On the success of the event, Eric Muscatell, VP of Development said “…gathering the donors in a more intimate setting, allowing them to see the offices and meet with our founders face-to-face shows them where the money goes, in some ways, more effectively than inviting them to dance in a ballroom.”
