The AUNTS Archive is a public facing community-centered hub for the collection, organization, and creation of an archive for AUNTS, a raucous, roving platform for dance and performance since 2005 based on the core values of inclusivity, collectivity, and resource sharing.
Past AUNTS artists, organizers and new visitors participate in the archive by contributing materials, images, oral histories, or by witnessing. Collectively assembling an archive at our triangular sports bar – modeled after Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party – the BARCHIVE at LMCC’s Art Center at Governors Island will be open throughout June where visitors can visit the bar to view and participate in the archive-in-process. Look at photos and videos from past events, attend live performances, talks, and joining your AUNTIES for a drink.
Collaborators include Stephanie Acosta, Biba Bell, Laurie Berg, past AUNTS artists + organizers, public institutions that hosted AUNTS from 2005-present
Supported by Van Cleef & Arpels and the National Endowment for the Arts
