What is an archive? Is it a collection? Is it an object? Or a place? Is it always made up of old stuff? Is it only important things? Who decides what goes into it?
Discover the possibilities of what an archive can be through conversations and family friendly tours with New Museum docents of the exhibition “XFR STN,” an artist-originated media-archiving project. Then head up to the Sky Room and begin to create an archive of your own life and things that are important to you through a series of documentation exercises—using drawing, writing, printmaking, measuring, and collecting.
