In this exhibition over fifty resources are presented by half local and half national artists, musicians, children, curators, archivists, as well as those from varying titles or titles in-between. These resources are displayed in a manner that encourages interaction within the exhibition space. FIFTY AT FIFTY FIFTY is an archive for collective research, collaboration, documentation and exchange. It is organized in an effort to archive past histories, current programming, and future endeavors for the gallery on both a digital and a physical scale.
How does a new institution set parameters for archiving and how do we build upon that in ways that go against and alongside archive histories? With archiving being a common curatorial and artistic practice on a national scale, what does it look like within a local framework and how do we react as an institution in a forward-thinking manner? FIFTY AT FIFTY FIFTY is an archive exhibition that seeks to do just that. It traditionally catalogues artist information, biographies, and images of works on our Digital Archive platform. It also seeks to create a space for the alternative; a space for varied artist resources, race and gender inclusion, humor and collaboration.
