Exploring the Archive

Beginning in the 20th century a significant trend in art has been a turn to the archive. Archived images, objects and documents have become central in visual culture's investigations of history, memory, testimony and identity. MFA students on this panel are presenting their research on the uses of the archive both historically and in their own contemporary artistic practices. Megan Charland, Laura Minor, Megan Sullivan, Alicia Taylor and Dan Varenka have all created work utilizing both personal archive materials as well as the extensive archive collections available at Visual Studies Workshop. They will showcase the research in a presentation, utilizing video, photographic and web-based media.
