Monica Mayer: Art, Archives, and Artist’s Archives

Event Details

Admission is free.

Over the past 3 decades, Monica Mayer has created archives, art based on archival materials and artist archives.  In this talk she will refer to different projects, such as the Pinto mi Raya archive, made in collaboration with Victor Lerma, which has compiled over 300,000 texts on contemporary Mexican art since 1991, and Archiva: master works of Mexican feminist art, a piece that included the creation of an artist archive and a series of performance lectures.

This lecture is presented at ONE Archives by the USC Roski School of Art and Design.
