Reading Group

An Archive, But Not An Atlas

May 25, 1–3pm

Critical Distance Centre for Curators
180 Shaw St Ste 302

Critical Distance hosts a group discussion of short readings pertaining to An Archive, But Not An Atlas. This series is in conjunction with the Gallery 44 exhibition Developing Historical Negatives.

Join curators Gabrielle Moser and Liz Ikiriko in a conversation about the gestures artists and researchers use to activate the photographic archive. Reading out loud from performance studies scholar Diana Taylor’s book, The Archive and the Repertoire (2003), and photography theorist Tina M. Campt’s book, Image Matters (2012), the group will meet across both gallery spaces to consider the “archival choreographies” deployed by artists to develop alternate histories from private and public collections.
