Exhibition Opening: Traces + Reflections
Sat, May 06, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm RECEPTION / PARTY
Join us for the opening of “Traces + Reflections: An In-Progress View of the Living Archive Project” on Saturday, May 6 from 5-8 p.m. There will be readings and musical performances starting at 6 p.m. This group exhibition, which is curated by Christina Hunt Wood for the Living Archive Project, runs through Sunday, May 14.
Traces + Reflections features artists, writers, and other creatives who have participated in Living Archive Project programs, thus far. The work in this show reflects on the personal archive and highlights the unique ways radical noticing, memory, experience, and place can intertwine through storytelling and the arts. The exhibition includes multimedia art, text-based images and objects, photographs, and video from participants of both youth and adult workshops.
Additionally, there will be interactive activities where visitors can contribute their stories to the Living Archive Project.
The Living Archive Project is a multidisciplinary collaboration between artists, community members, and organizations throughout the Northern Catskills. It aims to enrich and rethink rural tradition and culture through an inclusive representation of the histories of people living in the area through storytelling practices. This show is curated by Christina Hunt Wood, lead artist for the Living Archive Project. Wood is a multimedia artist, Creatives Rebuild New York Fellow, and Bushel Collective member.
