CURATING ARCHIVES Event Series
What does it mean to consider archival practice – a commitment to historical documentation and preservation – as an element of political radicalism? How might artists follow the peculiarities of the archive to activate new histories, coalitions, and forms of cultural memory? The Tabb Center’s fall series—an array of film screenings, panels, and talks—investigates the politics of historical memory and creative mobilizations of the archive.
Free and open to the public
