Mapping the Archive
de Young Artist Fellowship Project, 2014
Mapping the Archive was developed over many months (and years of collecting), and was manifested during three weeks in the de Young’s Kimball Education Gallery/Artist Studio. The Installation was based around an ever growing timeline of the history of Bay Area post-studio practice and the socioeconomic climate that fostered it. It included borrowed and collected archival materials/ephemera, a library, an interactive “Taxonomy Station”, weekly speakers, and a website. The project continued through the end of the year with more events, a printed piece, a website, and an archive-inspired installation of Dias de los Muertos at Oakland Museum.
