The session was thoughtful, informative and on a subject that is important for the world to remember. Alicia knows the subject matter well and gives it the respect that it deserves.
Dr. Reksc showed how artists can observe and create art about the lives of others as well as themselves. In this case the focus was on the social, political and personal response to the Aids epidemic. Her talk was at times a sad commentary on how people respond to challenges, but at other points a type of victory through confrontation of the problem. A superb presentation.
Dr. Alicja Reksc did a wonderful job or presenting a comprehensive but not overwhelming introduction to the visual culture connected to the AIDS crisis that was elegantly contextualized within the broader social and especially political landscape in the 1980s and 1990s.
