The Provincetown AIDS Art Archives was established in 1994 by the Provincetown Community Compact, Inc. for the purpose of documenting the lives and work of Lower Cape Cod visual artists, performing artists, writers, and composers who have died of AIDS-related causes.

What is AIDS?

What is it?
I don't know. All I know is that I hate it.

But what is it?
I don't know. Because of it, my life will never be the same. I hate it.

What is it?
A monster, a virus, a war, a monkey virus, a drug virus, chemical warfare, God's judgement, a population decrese. I don't know. I hate it.

What is it?
It is sorrow, it is pain, it is regret.
It destroys, it saddens. I hate it.

What is it?
It gives you fevers, chills, the sweats, the shits, PCP, Kaposi's Sarcoma, MAI, TB.
It starves you, it blinds you; it disfigures.
It gives you "thrush" -- Candida -- craters in the back of your throat. You can't swallow.
You can't breathe.
You can't walk; you can't talk.
You can't write; you can't think. I hate it.

But what is it?
It took my son. I hate it!
