Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Panelists explore the intersections between art and archives as well as strategies used in documenting artists' lives and work. Artists' archives can range from audiovisual to source materials to project records to artwork, and they challenge traditional concepts of management, access, and digitization. The speakers share observations, workflows, and lessons learned; explore what allied professions offer; and discuss how their skill sets have grown in response to their professional situations.
