Slide Night: The Archive as Constellation
Thursday March 16, 6pm-8pm
Slide Night: The Archive as Constellation presents a series of short talks by specialists working across the fields of art, archaeology, history and natural sciences. Each presenter will discuss a sequence of images that focus in on some of the rare, unusual or revealing archival documents, photographs and collections they work with. Taking on the format of an open and informal gathering, the evening will allow for the possibility of new connections, relations and alignments between images and ideas to emerge.
Introduction: Lisa Sammut, Artist.
Presenters: Vanessa Finney, Manager of Archives, Rare Books and Library Collections, Australian Museum; Nyree Morrison, Senior Archivist, The University of Sydney and Candace Richards, Acting Senior Curator, Nicholson Museum.
