ARTISTS' RECORDS in the ARCHIVES: Symposium Proceedings

This publication documents the New York Archives Week symposium, "Artists’ Records in the Archives,"  held on October 11, 2011 at the New York Public Library, and on October 12, 2011 at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

The symposium was dedicated to investigating and broadening the discussion surrounding artists’ records—documents created by artists that bear witness to the creative process, often including sketches, doodles, and other notations. Eight sessions featuring twenty-seven presenters addressed the relationships among artists’ records, artwork, and artists; the significance of artists’ records in archives for scholars and curators; and how archivists and special collections librarians manage artists’ records in their repositories.
