“Art as Archive, Archive as Art”

Why is the art world suddenly interested?

The inclusion of archives in art exhibitions is a trend that has taken the art world by storm and awakened the world of the archives to new possibilities. This trend was exemplified at the Whitney Biennial 2014 which included the work of several artists and contemporary scholars whose archives or personal papers are all part of the Downtown Collection at NYU's Fales Library and Special Collections.

Join us as we host Marvin J. Taylor, Director of the Fales Library and Special collections at NYU, who will discuss the trend and the implications for the future.
