about-when
about-why

How can art help in spreading awareness and education? Art is another way of communication – it is how human expresses an emotion, an idea and message in a different form through creativity by revealing the unsaid and brings you to a different perspective of the world. The idea behind this move is to raise fund through auctioning art and the fund raised will be channeled tovarious welfare organisations fighting for HIV/AIDS.

Karex Berhad have been hosting this proudful art charity campaign over the last 5 years and it is getting bigger and supported by the community as it evolves. It was first set up in 2015 – as a musical variety show and featuring a small number of artworks to be auctioned.In 2016, it was hosted as a complete art auction charity where it features prominent local artists and later in 2017 to date – Art Against AIDS (AAA) was rebranded, where professional artists together with the students mainly from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UITM) and Malaysian Institute of Art (MIA) has taken part in supporting this annual charity campaign.
