The New Archive Project by leannej
Deadline: Ongoing from October 5 to November 17
Closing Party and archive wrap-up: November 18 at 8pm
How to submit
You may submit work directly to Project Space, either in person during our open hours (emailing ahead to let us know is recommended) or by mail or email.
As part of her interaction with the archive in the Wandering Art Metropole Publications and Ephemera Archive: Part 2, leannej invites artists to submit two-dimensional work to The New Archive Project throughout the exhibition (October 5 – November 17). The Wandering Archive features back issues and other materials from FILE Megazine—an art magazine published by Art Metropole from 1972 and 1986—which will be on display at Project Space. Artists are encouraged to reference the history of FILE and the ground-breaking work of General Idea when creating new archive materials and are also asked to consider the role of the archive as a means of cataloguing history. The New Archive materials will be displayed alongside the original archive materials throughout the exhibition. After the Wandering Archive travels to its next location, the new archive will be catalogued and stored in Vancouver.
