For Day With(out) Art 2021, The Studio Museum in Harlem is honored to partner with Visual AIDS and the Brooklyn Museum to present the New York City premiere of ENDURING CARE, a video program highlighting strategies of community care within the ongoing HIV epidemic.
The program features newly commissioned work by Katherine Cheairs, Cristóbal Guerra, Danny Kilbride, Abdul-Aliy A. Muhammad and Uriah Bussey, Beto Pérez, Steed 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 nonprofits. The program’s title suggests a dual meaning that honors the perseverance and commitment of care workers and also addresses the potential for harm from medications and healthcare providers. ENDURING CARE disrupts the assumption that an epidemic can be solved with pharmaceuticals alone and recasts community work as a lasting form of medicine.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with artists Katherine Cheairs, Cristóbal Guerra, Abdul-Aliy A. Muhammad, Beto Pérez, and Steed Taylor, moderated by Blake Paskal.
The program is free, but registration is required.
200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238
All visitors twelve and older must show proof of vaccination and a valid ID. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status.
The program will include English language captions for videos and ASL interpretation for the artist conversation. For access needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visual AIDS is a New York-based non-profit that utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over.
The Studio Museum in Harlem’s digital programming is made possible thanks to support provided by the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation’s Frankenthaler Digital Initiative.
