Opening Reception: Friday, December 16, 2011
6:30 – 9:30 pm
Please join us for the first public event of Interference Archive.
Dara Greenwald, Josh MacPhee, Molly Fair, and Kevin Caplicki (as well as all the other people who have helped) would like to introduce you to our space, which we have been working on building out all fall and winter. In addition, we have hung a collection of materials from the archive related to punk feminism (largely pulled from Dara’s personal collection) as a nice introduction to some of the kinds of work we are archiving.
Interference Archive explores the relationship between cultural production and social movements. The archive consists of many kinds of objects that are created as part of movements: posters, flyers, publications, photographs, T-shirts, moving images, audio recordings, and other printed matter. Through public exhibitions, a study center, talks, screenings, publications, workshops, and an online presence, we use this cultural ephemera to animate histories of people mobilizing for social transformation.
This initial event is an informal introduction to Interference Archive. Come learn about the more formal exhibitions, public events, and open hours we are planning. We will be holding weekly study hours for people to come research and work in the archive in the near future.
