22 Oct 2009-31 Jan 2010. This travelling exhibition is an international project that has the double aim of making and promoting art and preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS. The participating artists come from Brazil, the United States, India and South Africa and share the belief that artistic solidarity can mitigate the consequences of HIV/AIDS and help promote access to treatment.

At the Castle of Good Hope Daniel Goldstein has reproduced one of his sculptures entitled Medicine Man, made from hundreds of empty Anti-Retroviral (ARV) medicine bottles belonging to South Africans affected by HIV. In the original sculpture the bottles belonged to the artist John Kapellas. This artwork denounces the side effects of ARV treatment to slow the progression of HIV/AIDS.
