The Institute held the first in a series of symposia dedicated to advancing a public discourse on current issues and best practices in the management of artists’ archives. This one-day symposium brought together artists, scholars, archivists, collectors, estate and foundations managers, and the public to address the changing landscape of archive stewardship in contemporary art.
