This public discussion is the first in a two-part series exploring the creative use of archives and exhibition data of public cultural institutions. Moderated by data artist Jer Thorp, this discussion features Mario Klingemann, expert coder and artist; and Emily Spivack, writer and founder of Threaded, Smithsonian’s historical fashion blog.
Part II of Archives as Instigator is a hands-on workshop to be held on July 12 at MoMA. Registration for this workshop is separate and space is very limited.
This program is presented as part of Artists Experiment, in collaboration with the Office for Creative Research.
Artists Experiment is an annual initiative in the Department of Education that brings together contemporary artists in dialogue with MoMA educators to conceptualize ideas for innovative and experimental public interactions.
The current Artists Experiment project, Emily Spivack's An archive of everything worn to MoMA from November 1, 2017, to January 28, 2018, will be on view in the Museum through January 28, 2018. The Department of Education is also collaborating with artist Michael Rakowitz on a forthcoming project.
