Like many within the Visual AIDS community, Frank Moore was an artist, activist and organizer. He was a foundational voice in the earliest years of Visual AIDS, including his significant contributions as part of the Visual AIDS Artists Caucus’ creation of the Red Ribbon, and The Archive Project with co-founder David Hirsh. His influence is ever present, and he continues to inspire, and guide. "Toxic Beauty", a collection of his paintings and personal papers, is currently on view at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery and the Fales Library.

In honor of the new Visual AIDS Artist Registry, the online digital extension of The Archive Project, we have focused this month’s web gallery on Frank Moore and the creation of the Archive Project in 1994.
