From Sara Rosen’s article and interview with Greg Ellis, curator of “Screaming in the Streets: AIDS, Art, Activism”:
Looking back at the AIDS crisis through the prism of history, the scale is so vast, the scope is broad, and the trauma is so real. They say time heals all wounds, but they were wrong. “The past is never dead. It’s not even past,” William Faulkner understood.
Two decades after the epidemic hit its zenith, we can now begin to look back, to reflect, to consider, discuss, and reflect on what happened, what it meant, and the lessons we can take as we enter a brave new world.
