The Archive as Future Knowledge

This panel addresses the role of the archive as a tool for imagining new futures in the inter-related time-based media fields of artistic practice, curatorial thinking, and documentation strategies, as a collective building of future knowledge.

The panel, presented in conjunction with Mountain / Time, brings together three artists from the exhibition—Korakrit Arunanondchai, Alan Michelson, and Kandis Williams—for whom the archive is of central importance. Film scholar and Professor of Film at New York University Michael Gillespie addresses the role of the moving image and film archives as forms of knowledge production, and Chrissie Iles, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator, and Farris Wahbeh, Benjamin and Irma Weiss Director of Research Resources, from the Whitney Museum of American Art, discuss the role of the archive in experiential conservation and new collaborative inter-institutional structures of care.

Free and open to the public.
