Visual AIDS Presents Postcards from the Edge 2022

Visual AIDS’ most popular and most successful annual benefit auction, Postcards from the Edge, will occur from Saturday, January 8 at 10:00 a.m. EST through Friday, January 14 at midnight EST. Due to uncertainties around the Delta Variant of the COVID-19 virus, the event will be held virtually again this year.

Every year, Visual AIDS gathers postcard-size artwork from artists who are living with HIV or otherwise affected by HIV. Last year, Postcards from the Edge featured 1,069 artworks submitted from twenty-five countries. They sold over 700 artworks in the first two hours of the sale and sold out over the course of the weekend.

All postcard artworks submitted to Visual AIDS are photographed and scanned. Those images are uploaded to a dedicated virtual viewing space. All artworks will remain anonymous until purchased. To assist collectors with online viewing, the auction site will include information such as title and medium for each work along with high resolution images. For more information about how the virtual benefit will work, please visit https://visualaids.org/events.

Visual AIDS hopes that all avid collectors, especially those new to the event, will join them online in January to purchase artwork. Your support will help Visual AIDS generate the income they need to carry out their work. Visual AIDS is the only arts organization fully committed to raising AIDS awareness and creating dialogues around HIV issues today. They produce art projects, exhibitions, public forums, and publications, while assisting HIV-positive artists and preserving their legacy.

This year’s event is dedicated to Louise Fishman (1939–2021), a brilliant artist and a great friend and supporter of Visual AIDS.
