Just listened to a fantastic panel on envisioning the archives of the future on the New York Public Library Podcast (@nypl). Made me want to get right on a plane to Chicago to see the Johnson archives at the Stoney Island Arts Bank. “Chicago-based artist Theaster Gates (@theastergates) was joined by Nettrice Gaskins, director of the STEAM Lab at the Boston Arts Academy, and Greg Carr, a professor at Howard University. - A few years ago Gates bought an abandoned bank from the city for one dollar and remade it into a hybrid gallery, community center, library, and archive where “neighborhood residents…preserve, access, reimagine, and share their heritage” and which serves as a “destination for artists, scholars, curators, and collectors to research and engage with South Side history.” Among its archives are books and periodicals donated by the Johnson Publishing Company, publisher of Ebony and Jet magazines, over 60,000 slides of art and architectural history from the University of Chicago, and the record collection of house music godfather Frankie Knuckles. “ #newyorkpubliclibrary #podcast #theastergates #nyplpodcast #stoneyislandartsbank #rebuildfoundation
