Our Director of Research Collections, Thomaï Serdari, is pleased to announce the release of the proceedings for the New York Archives Week symposium, “Artists Records in the Archives,” held on October 11, 2011 at the New York Public Library, and on October 12, 2011 at the Fashion Institute of Technology, an initiate of The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York Inc.

The proceedings are available for download on the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc.’s website.

You will find Thomaï’s contribution in Session 2 of the proceedings.

The symposium was dedicated to investigating and broadening the discussion surrounding artists’ records—documents created by artists that bear witness to the creative process, often including sketches, doodles, and other notations. Eight sessions featuring twenty-seven presenters addressed the relationships among artists’ records, artwork, and artists; the significance of artists’ records in archives for scholars and curators; and how archivists and special collections librarians manage artists’ records in their repositories.
