In the panel 'Showing the Work: Feminist archival practice and exhibition'

What is at stake in the exhibition of textual materials, scores, instructions, publications and other ephemera? At a time when archival materials are increasingly present in international exhibition-making – not least in Women In Revolt! – is it possible to gesture towards not only the liveness of such materials but the social materiality of their iterative and enfolding live or performed contexts? Specifically concerned with (feminist) works that blur the distinction between the archive and the art collection, this contribution will consider examples of collaborative curatorial approaches that complicate narratives – to position that it is a not a matter of finding ways to ‘fit’ such practices into institutions but rather of listening to the re-imagining of institutions that such works themselves imply.
