Harald Szeemann Archives and Library Become Available to the Public

Posted on December 10, 2013

Posted on December 10, 2013


“Perhaps the most famous curator of the post-World War II era, Szeemann was an ardent advocate of modern and contemporary art, from Dada, surrealism, and futurism, to conceptualism, postminimalism, performance art, and new forms of installation and video art.”

In 2011, the Getty Research Institute acquired the Harald Szeemann complete archives and library. The archive and library contain a comprehensive record of Szeemann’s correspondence with artists, academics and cultural producers from the 1950’s through his death in 2005. Also included are extraordinary materials from the early 20th century including prints, drawings, photographs, posters, videotapes and other valuable ephemera. The archive encompasses Szeemann’s extensive personal library of monographs, artists books and other rare publications, documenting Szeemann’s work, research and relationships with some of 20th century’s most influential artists such as Joseph Beuys, Bruce Nauman, Richard Serra, and Cy Twombly. The Harald Szeemann archive and library are currently in the process of being catalogued and made available to the public, with the work scheduled to be completed by January of 2015. For more information and to stay up to date on the cataloguing process, visit the Getty Research Institute’s website here.

ARC Magazine features Marlon Griffith

Posted on March 8, 2014

ARC Magazine features one of the first performances for En Mas’: Marlon Griffith.

“Positions + Power is an intervention in the space of carnival that uses the body as a primary medium, stripping mas’ of its decorative elements while maintaining a balance between the material and the immaterial. Through the positions of and interactions between the masqueraders and an ominous mobile surveillance tower, reminiscent of police booths omnipresent at carnival time, Positions + Power points to power relations in public space between the state and civil society. Positions + Power also makes visible processes of negotiation of class and ethnicity through body make-up inspired by the local fashion of chest powdering.” – ARC Magazine
