The Artist Archives Initiative was founded at New York University to promote research and disseminate knowledge about the display and care of contemporary art. The initiative responds to a growing need for art world professionals and academic researchers to work with artists in building information resources to aid future exhibition and re-activation of their work. The focus is equally on the content of these resources and the software technology used to house the information. In addition to creating artist-specific resources, our aim is to stimulate discussion about variability and authenticity in the display of contemporary art through symposia, workshops, and publications.
This event is being co-sponsored by these organizations: NYU Libraries, The Center for the Humanities, NYU, The Graduate School of Arts & Science, NYU, Museum Studies Program, NYU
