ARCHIVE ACTS PRESENTS: ALWAYS IN TIME-AN ARCHIVAL WORKSHOP FOR ARTISTS AND FILMMAKERS
ALWAYS IN TIME: AN ARCHIVAL WORKSHOP FOR ARTISTS & FILMMAKERS On December 15th, 5pm CST, Archive Acts presents a free workshop with media conservator Caroline Gil Rodríguez from XFR Collective. Moving through a wide range of formats from analog videotapes, born-digital, and analog film, we will share tactics for artists, videographers, and filmmakers to devise strategies for the care and conservation of their raw footage and completed film and video works. Topics include strategies for documentation and preservation, in addition to sourcing external frameworks such as community archives and distribution that can assist in long-term preservation of moving image works. Caroline Gil is a Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in Media Conservation at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. At MoMA, she collaboratively works with the media conservation team in the acquisition, exhibition, preventive conservation, and research of the collection’s audio, film, video, performance and software-based works.

CO-PRESENTATION WITH OKNO#1 & ARCHIVE ACTS: FEATURING ARTISTS JESSICA HARVEY & CANDACE LIN
CO-PRESENTATION WITH OKNO#1 AND ARCHIVE ACTS: FEATURING Artists Jessica Harvey and Candice Lin December 12th, 2020 at 2pm CST Join us on Saturday, December 12th at 2pm for Ritual Archives, a conversation with artists Jessica Harvey and Candice Lin. We’ll explore the archival fringes found in Harvey and Lin’s work, from fictionalized artifacts and collections to new rituals for care and preservation, revealing a much less sterile, and far more human foundation of archival practice. Lin and Harvey both circumvent traditional expectations of the archive with materials as diverse as frozen urine, jarred farts, experimental fungi, and alchemical rituals of material and memory. Thanks to our generous sponsor, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, for supporting this series of three conversations with artists working with archives as reparative technology.
Archive Acts presents, ECHOING EACH OTHER, films curated by AMAL ALHAAG
Thrilled to be presenting Archive Acts' last official film screening of 2020, programmed by Amsterdam-based curator Amal Alhaag. Amal Alhaag's film program and panel will be an in-depth conversation highlighting films and conversation on Black (intergenerational) life in Europe. In Amal's own words: Echoing Each Other How do we hold each other? How do we remember each other into the future? How do we show-up for each other when the stage lights are off? Echoing Each Other is an online gathering, a virtual living room that brings together three artists + curators whose work and thought draw from everyday intergenerational Black social life, love and communities. The films and panel conversation interweave oral stories, anecdotes, archives and cinematic references that shape Black (feminist)life, Black diasporic communities, practices and activism across borders, beyond marginalization and violence in Europe. Watch films on archiveacts.com from DECEMBER 7-14, 2020 featuring work by: FILMMAKERS: BARBY ASANTE PASCALE OBOLO SILVIA MARTES IDA DOES And of course, join us for the panel, Monday, December 7th, 2.30pm CST/9.30PM CET with programmer Amal Alhaag, artist and curator Barby Asante, and curator and artist and educator Pascale Obolo.

Archive Acts Presents Devon Narine-Singh's Film Program: Material Memory
Join us for the second film program with Archive Acts. Material Memory is a rhythmically rich program of experimental short films curated by @devonnarines Devon Narine-Singh. Watch now on archiveacts.com ❣❣❣ Programmer's Notes: Material Memory is a survey of recent experimental films. These films privilege a visceral cinema. We can feel these films, we can touch them, but they are not physically present. These films argue for memory as living archive, as something to preserve, rather than let die." ❣❣❣ filmmakers (FILMS WILL BE ON VIEW FROM NOVEMBER 6-13th, 2020) KALPANA SUBRAMANIAN BLANCA REGO_aka BLANK LUIS VASQUEZ LA ROCHE JOANNA HELFER NAZLI DINCEL KENGNÉ TÉGUIA ALEC BUTLER panelists (PANEL WILL STREAM NOVEMBER 12, 2020 @4pm CST ) KALPANA SUBRAMANIAN LUIS VASQUEZ LA ROCHE ALEC BUTLER Devon Narine-Singh is a filmmaker and curator.
