DESCRIPTION

On the occasion of the launch of Gallery 400’s new website and exhibition and event archive, the Gallery presents the exhibition Archival Impulse. Numerous artists in Gallery 400’s history have demonstrated an interest in the archive as a structuring device and a site through which histories are contested. Including those artists as well as others currently employing archive processes, Archival Impulse gathers together works that draw from historical archives, construct new archives in varied collection formats, mine the archives of art history, and generally question the ways in which cultural memory is established.
