This panel discussion marks the second 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.
The second panel discussion, Innovative Practices of Presenting Archives to the Public focuses on professionals working with archives, responding to the omissions of materials, users, and uses of their collections. This panel considers the ways in which archivists and curators are changing their presentation of archives as material culture to respond to new content and new users, including artists and the general public.
