The third in an ongoing series of forums, Reactivating: Art and Archives gathers a community of interest around the issues of art, activism and archives. A collaboration with the Pleasure and Protest, Sometimes Simultaneously! free school and Western Front, this iteration takes the form of a panel discussion. Moderated by PPSS! co-founders Randy Lee Cutler and Magnolia Pauker, panelists Lorna Brown, Marcia Crosby and Kay Higgins will explore personal and professional experiences related to the broad thematic of Feminisms and Archives, promising critical and creative conversations, live. The aim of PPSS! is to engage and inspire critical praxis through reading and thinking together.
This event is free and open to the public.
Archives LIVE! Reactivating: Art and Archives is part of the Belkin Art Gallery’s project Beginning With the Seventies, an ongoing research initiative investigating the 1970s, an era in which social movements of all kinds – feminism, environmentalism, LGBTQ rights, access to health services and housing – began to coalesce into models of self-organization. We gratefully acknowledge event collaborators PPSS! And Western Front for their support of Archives LIVE! Reactivating: Art and Archives. Archives LIVE! is also part of the Spring Fever: Vancouver Independent Archives 2017 events.
