Studio Resident (2015 - 2016)
Statement of Work
Archive Collective is a Kansas City-based photography collective that supports and contributes to the education, promotion, and publication of photography and lens-based media in the Midwest. Through an on-going series of unique events, Archive provides more opportunities for photography, for ourselves, and for others. Since 2013, Archive has hosted group critiques, gallery visits, artist talks, panel discussions, local and traveling exhibitions, studio visits, workshops, and meet-ups. Archive maintains archivecollective.org, a resource for contemporary photography. The archive also curates an Instagram with weekly takeovers that have featured 50+ local, national, and international artists.
Archive Collective’s goal is to celebrate and contribute to the democracy, versatility, and ever-evolving critical discourse of photography and lens-based media, while simultaneously securing its place within a broader Kansas City arts community.
