ARI REMIX PROJECT: LIVING ARCHIVES, ARTIST-RUNS: AUSTRALIAN ARTIST-RUN ECOLOGIES 1970 TO NOW

Doing It Together, Remembering Together: Interviews with artists about the hidden histories and marginalised narratives through the digitization of artists’ ephemera, personal stories about grassroots independent DIY artist-run ecologies and heritage, about social structures and the many affordances of operating artist-run initiatives past, present, future.

THE EPHEMERA INTERVIEWS

In this series of living memory accounts by and interviews  with artists directly involved in ARIs and grassroots artist-run culture 1970 to Now they speak about the social, cultural and political context for their art making. Artists around the globe often feel that their artists’ ephemera is explicitly made and situated as transient, but collectable, art works. They provide key insights into the artists’ ephemera, artist-run activities and intersectional DIY independent contemporary art events they produced or collaborated on during this period. Artists’ ephemera includes artworks, photocopy/xerox art, zines, artist books, banners, street sandwich boards, photographs, videos, films, audio, mail art, posters, exhibition invites, flyers, buttons and badges, exhibition catalogues, exhibition didactics, room sheets, related artist publications, analogue to digital resources and artist files, many of these ephemeral materials are ‘at risk’ and are held by artists in their personal archives. The ARI Remix project aims to reconnect with artists to access, digitize, contextualize and re-present these ‘at risk ephemeral materials and enable artists to participate in ‘action heritage’ and ‘cultural justice’ use this archival art initiative process to retrieve, recover and distribute their materials through cultural storytelling; prose, memory, poetry, visual essays and so on….thanks for reading and sharing 🙂
