YEAH AIDS 2014 Stop Motion Projection Images on Hamer Hall

YEAH (Youth Empowerment Against HIV/AIDS) with support from the Commonwealth Government, the Victorian Government, the City of Melbourne and the Arts Centre Melbourne proudly presented ‘Honouring the Past & Hope for the Future: Toward an HIV Free Generation’, a showcase of unique digital art projections that put a spotlight on creating an HIV- free generation as the projections lit up the façade of the Arts Centre’s Hamer Hall nightly during the AIDS 2014 Conference.


This sophisticated and symbolic public art installation, together with a one- story high red ‘AIDS 2014’ sign installed across the length of Princes Bridge, marked the beginning of public engagement with the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014) hosted in Melbourne from July 20-25.

The projections incorporated images from the Australian AIDS Memorial Quilt, Honouring the Past, alongside works exploring the theme of Hope for the Future, submitted by artists from Melbourne and her six sister cities: Thessaloniki, St.Petersburg, Osaka,Tianjin, Boston and Milan. The works also incorporated quotes from international leaders including President Barack Obama and Executive Director of UNAIDS Michel Sidibe, on their vision of an HIV-free generation.
