About the Project

For World AIDS Day 1992 and its accompanying event, Day Without Art, Creative Time presented We Interrupt This Program…, a live national television broadcast that combined performances by contemporary artists with pieces by young performers from the Hetrick Martin Institute. The broadcast also included pretaped artists’ materials and live on-air contributions from artists and AIDS activists in cities across the country.


Interactive and unpredictable, We Interrupt This Program… successfully fused the energy and exposure of live performance with both the immediacy of the AIDS crisis and the urgency of AIDS education.
