Grand Opening 1 Dec 2009: ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

A project organised by ArtAids with the participation of twenty artists from Barcelona or with a special link to the city. The project is driven by a desire to increase awareness of the need for prevention and to reflect on the feelings of people living with HIV.
