This panel discussion marks the third and final 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.
Our third panel, Artists Activating the Archive examines the ways in which creative writers, visual artists, and performers are using archives as a catalyst in their own work and re-contextualizing archives as artwork. This panel focuses on the evolving collaboration between archival professionals and artists and how this new work is changing archives and art.
Panelists will include:
- D. Graham Burnett - Performance Artist and Writer, New York
- Donald Daedalus - Visual Artist, and Past Scholar at The Center for Book Arts
- Emilio Chapela Perez - Visual Artist, Mexico City
- Lytle Shaw - Poet and Professor of English, New York University
- Matt Wolf - Independent Filmmaker, New York
