What do historical records and testimonies provide us today, and how can they help us envision a better future?
In conjunction with the exhibition The Law for Falling Bodies, this educational program will focus on archives as a public resource, featuring exhibition artist Ruben Castillo and curator of special collections & archives at the Miller Nichols Library Stuart Hinds. Both will discuss queer history, public archives, and how these ideas intersect with contemporary art. Ruben will present examples of archives in artists’ practices and how they feature in his work. Stuart will discuss the founding of the Gay & Lesbian Archives of Mid America (GLAMA), the scope of the collection, and how to interact with the archives for research.
