For Day With(out) Art 2021, Visual AIDS presents ENDURING CARE, a video program highlighting strategies of community care within the ongoing HIV epidemic. The program features newly commissioned work by Katherine CheairsCristóbal GuerraDanny KilbrideAbdul-Aliy A. Muhammad and Uriah BusseyBeto PérezSteed Taylor, and J Triangular and the Women’s Video Support Project.

From histories of harm reduction and prison activism to the long-term effects of HIV medication, ENDURING CARE centers stories of collective care, mutual aid, and solidarity while pointing to the negligence of governments and non-profits. The program’s title suggests a dual meaning, honoring the perseverance and commitment of care workers yet also addressing the potential for harm from medications and healthcare providers. ENDURING CARE disrupts the assumption that an epidemic can be solved with pharmaceuticals alone, recasting community work as a lasting form of medicine.

The hour-long video program will premiere on December 1, 2021, World AIDS Day/Day With(out) Art. This screening at CAM is one of over 100 presentations worldwide in partnership with Visual AIDS.

The artists in this year’s program were selected through an open call process juried by Ivy Arce, Jean Carlomusto, Thomas Allen Harris, and Mathew Rodriguez.
