thailandMORE TO LOVE: THE ART OF LIVING TOGETHER

ABOUT THE PROJECT
This ArtAids project brings together twenty visual artists from Thailand and Europe, a curator, people living with HIV and those involved in the fight against Aids. The project More to Love: The Art of Living Together, which takes the Thai expression ‘Putting their heart into your heart’ as its central inspiration, aims to raise awareness of HIV and Aids in Thailand and seeks to change prevailing attitudes. The works created for this project draw attention to the exclusion and stigmatisation experienced by those suffering from HIV and Aids.
A programme of exhibitions and other public events – some of them aimed specially at children – is presented in Bangkok in the summer of 2008. In November 2008, a book on the project will be published.
Curator of More to Love is Chattiya Nitpolprasert.
