In Conversation: Archival Perspectives: Keeping Records and Memories – HYBRID

Thursday, March 3, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Free, suggested donation: $5 Museum Members, $10 non-members

How can an archive reflect artworks that are constantly changing? How can an archive incorporate diverse points of view? How can an archive foster complex thinking and questioning?

The specific, yet open-ended nature of Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s work necessitates a multifaceted approach to archival practices in order to record the unique decisions made around each manifestation and installation of the work, as well as to represent the evolution of the work over time. Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s work Untitled (L.A.), 1991, is a featured work in our special exhibition Ruminations on Memory. The specific choices made by the Museum around the manifestation and installation of Untitled (L.A.) will contribute to the history and trajectory of the work, and will be represented within the archive around the artists’ work.

Join Hilary Schroeder, assistant curator, and Brittni Zotos, director of archives at Andrea Rosen Gallery, in conversation as we explore ways in which archives are a form of memory keeping and how archival practices around Gonzalez-Torres’s work respond to the nature of experiencing the work itself.

Brittni Zotos is director of archives at Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York. Brittni received a BA in Art History from Wesleyan University and has 10 years of research and archives experience in the context of galleries, artist studios, and arts organizations.
