Treatment Action Group is pleased to present the historic art exhibition and sale: TAG Limited Art Editions 1999 – 2017, running from Wednesday March 21 through Saturday March 24, 2018 at Westbeth Gallery in New York City. Running from Wednesday March 21 through Saturday March 24, 2018 at Westbeth Gallery, located at 55 Bethune Street in New York City. Gallery hours are: Wednesday thru Saturday from 1 pm to 8 pm.
This exhibition marks the first time that all 14 editions will be exhibited together. A full-color catalog accompanies the exhibition with an essay by Joy Episalla. It will be available for purchase in the gallery and after the exhibition it will be available for purchase on our Limited Art Editions page.
The TAG art collection started in 1999 through the donation of over 30 silver gelatin selenium-toned prints by the photographer Ben Thornberry. Thornberry’s images document ACT UP (AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power) AIDS activists in action during the height of the AIDS crisis, from the late 1980s to the early 1990s.
Since 2005, the collection has continued to grow through the TAG Limited Art Editions. Overseeing the editions is board member, artist, and long-time AIDS activist Joy Episalla. Episalla has helped gather a stellar group of artists who have generously donated editions specifically produced for TAG. Treatment Action Group hopes you will consider joining these artists in supporting TAG’s important and life-saving work by adding to your art collection.
Included in the exhibition are Erica Baum (2017), Rosalind Fox Solomon (2016), Joy Episalla (2015), Kate Shepherd (2014), Nan Goldin (2013), Robert Gober (2012), Bill Jacobson (2011), fierce pussy (2010), Donald Moffett (2009), Tony Feher (2008), Carrie Yamaoka (2007), David Armstrong (2006), Richard Renaldi (2005), and Ben Thornberry (1999). TAG wants to thank each of these artists for their generosity.
