SUMMARY INFORMATIONEvent Curators (Creator): Ladi’Sasha Jones, Joyce LeeAnn Joseph, Kameelah RasheedTitle and Date:The Finding Aid: Black Women at the Intersection of Art and Archiving, May 21, 2013
Abstract:The Finding Aid: Black Women at the Intersection of Art and Archiving is an interactive, multi-media dialogue that explores the intersection of experimental art practices and community-based archiving. The event’s organization is based on the idea of a ‘finding aid’ -a document used in archives for accessibility and discovery. We will transform a finding aid from an archival inventory/guide into an artistic archival experience. Our goal for this event is that people leave knowing what an archive and archivist is or can be, and that people feel empowered to begin their own archival/artistic practice or feel moved to engage with existing archives.
