La Centrale Archives
Off-site Research Projects January to May, 2014
Research project presentations will be held on November 27th and December 12th, 2014
As part of La Centrale's special 40th Anniversary Programming, artists have proposed a series of research residencies that reanimate the archives in various forms. These residencies respond to the centrale question of our 40th activities in that they reflect on the impact on historical feminist strategies on contemporary practice. In these projects artists are exploring archival materials, the concept and limits of the archive as well as notions of history and its authority.
