This panel discussion marks the first installment of the 2015 History of Art Series: Repositioning the Archive, co-sponsored by METRO, The Center for Book Arts, and the New York Chapter of the American Printing History Association, with grant support from the New York Council for the Humanities.
This series of discussions explores how the archive is being repositioned, both as collection and as artistic tool. Featuring academics, curators, archivists, artists, and writers who are presenting the archive as a means of investigating and invigorating art and humanities, the panels will consider issues around information, power, and creativity.
This first panel, Understanding Archives and Recent Shifts takes a historical and theoretical approach to discussing the history, theory and practice of archives as well as the way in which most people understand archives as material culture in relation to a lived history.
