AIDS ACTION… BY MICAH LEXIER with DARIEN TAYLOR & ERIC MYKHALOVSKIY
Utilizing his trademark techniques of found imagery, simplicity and repetition, Micah Lexier has created a poster that addresses the decidedly unsexy, but complex issue of access to treatment. Quality of care, accuracy of information, even access to treatment itself is dependent on a myriad of factors, both personal and practical. Lexier was tasked with the challenge to create a poster that itemized a number of these extenuating circumstances. Playing with duplication and a simple colour inversion, Lexier riffs on AIDS Action Now’s dated but indelible logo to focus on the simple but nuanced message that access to treatment is not equal for all.
