Day Without Art / jour sans art

Day Without Art (DWA) began in 1989 as the national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS Service Organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part on both the national and international levels.

Each year the Beaverbrook Art Gallery participates in Day Without Art – December 1st – by shrouding a piece of art on display. This year we have chosen Graham Sutherland’s Portrait of Lord Beaverbrook (1951) to be covered for the day.

Le « jour sans art » à débuté en 1989 comme jour national d’action et de souvenir en réponse à la crise du sida. Pour faire remarquer au publique que le sida peut nous affecter tous, et pour inspirer des actions positives, environ 800 artistes et groupes lies au sida américain(e)s ont participés au premier Jour sans art, en fermant des musées, en envoyant leurs employé(e)s pour faire du bénévolat aux services de sida, ou en mettant de l’appui envers des expositions spéciales à propos du sida. Depuis cela, le jour sans art est devenu un projet collaboratif auquel environ 8000 musées, galeries, centres d’art, organismes de services liés au sida, bibliothèques, écoles secondaires, et collèges participent, aux niveaux national et international.

La Galerie d’art Beaverbrook participe au jour sans art chaque 1er décembre en couvrant un œuvre en exposition. Cette année, la Galerie à choisi de couvrir le Portrait de Lord Beaverbrook (1951) par Graham Sutherland pour la journée.
