World AIDS Day observances Sunday ranged from "A Day Without Art" to a "Night Without Light." Methods for marking the occasion were as far-flung as the places where it was commemorated. In Russia, where homosexuality is a crime, members of the Russian Union of Gays and Lesbians passed out condoms and safe-sex literature outside Moscow City Hall. At Tel Aviv University, condoms were handed out and a quilt bearing names of Israeli AIDS victims was displayed.

Should contemporary art be allowed to rot in peace? Or should it be preserved, regardless of cost, difficulty and the artist's intentions? How about art that's made for the moment, of materials that disintegrate? What's an overworked conservator to do with photographs that change color, paintings that crumble or sculptures made of everything from chewing gum and lipstick to flocked Tupperware?

While hundreds of art lovers hummed about her, Lee Bontecou sat quietly on a banquette and confessed that she "wasn't used to all of this." Guest of honor at the soiree marking the opening of her retrospective at the UCLA Hammer Museum -- the facility's inaugural "Gala in the Garden" -- the reclusive artist who pioneered the technique of stretching canvas over welded metal armatures to create wall reliefs chose to take her time before mixing with the madding crowd.
