The GRID Project

The GRID project explores the relics of a lost future through painting. The word GRID was used as an acronym for Gay Related Immune Deficiency, the term used to refer to AIDS in the early days of the disease, inferring that gay men were the source of the disease as well as its sole target. Although the term was only used between 1981 and 1982, it prefigured the political use of hate and prejudice against homosexuals in the process of urban and social gentrification that followed the riots of the previous decades.
