Artists have long drawn inspiration from archives, but how can archives and artists collaborate in order to connect with new audiences in non-traditional ways? This session focuses on the City of Portland's artist-in-residence program, designed to interpret and present archives in unique ways and to introduce collections to new audiences. Artists present on their experiences working with the archives and perform or show portions of the art produced during their residencies.

Carbone: Artists in the Archives: Activisms and Transformations
Imatani: Presentation title TBD
Sand: She Had Her Own Reason for Participating
