this poster lives in moma’s collection, but has been included in the university of rochester’s collection of AIDS education posters. the archive is pretty impressive, compiling almost 1500 international and domestic posters regarding AIDS. the above poster by gran fury, the artist collective/committee side of ACT UP, is one of two posters that invoke reagan. the other, AIDSGATE, is by far my favorite. i know i’ve posted it here before. it, unfortunately, is not included in the rochester collection, though many other ACT UP visuals are. i did a whole research project on both groups during undergrad that somehow got lost in the great hard drive crash of 2005, but luckily the internet provides.
