LINK planning Art is Hope auction next week

Jul 16, 2020

LINK is pleased to announce the first edition of Art is Hope (from home), a purely digital version of its traditional charity art sale for the benefit of AIDES, the leading association in the fight against AIDS and hepatitis in France and Europe.

Due to the current pandemic and global health crisis, LINK has rarely been more mobilized in its long-term fight to stop new HIV infections, as it tries to ensure that a new generation may witness the end of the AIDS epidemic both in France and worldwide.

The first edition of Art is Hope (from home) will be exclusively devoted to contemporary American artistic creation, with works by James Krone, Steve Roden, Zoe Williams, April Street and Sean Patrick Watters, among many other artists. The online auction kicks off on Tuesday, July 21.

LINK thanked the artists and galleries that René-Julien Praz brought together for this first edition of Art is Hope for their donations. All of the profits from this sale will be donated to AIDES, which has been working for 30 years with those most vulnerable to HIV / AIDS and hepatitis to reduce new infections and support those affected in caring for and defending their rights.
