Kathy Rae Huffman Archive
Preview 28 June 6 – 9pm
Open by appointment 29 June – 24 September
This summer a selection of archive materials from curator Kathy Rae Huffman’s collection of rare books and catalogues held at Goldsmiths Library will be coming to Res. Huffman’s career spans the 1970s to present day, supporting artists to test the expressive qualities and materiality of technology including experimental video art, new media art, net.art, and cyberfeminism. In the late ‘70s she established Long Beach Museum of Art as a regional media art centre, working with early broadcasting technology and later produced platforms dedicated to women online, including ‘Face Settings’ an all female mailing list of media specialists of more than 100 women from twenty countries that resulted in a series of collective cooking meetings.
Further to welcoming all general interest visitors to spend time in the Reading Room, artists and writers to spend time in this Reading Room to develop proposals for newly commissioned artwork and writing that responds to the thematics of the archive. The selected proposals will result in exhibition also including historical works, a publication of new writing, and a series of discursive events in Spring 2017 at Res.
