The Feminist Institute Drop-In Memory Lab Hours at “What Did It Feel Like to Be There?: 12 Portraits from The Addresses Project.

 

The Feminist Institute (TFI) is thrilled to offer drop-in Memory Lab hours at City Lore, in collaboration with the current exhibition, “What Did It Feel Like to Be There?: 12 Portraits from The Addresses Project.” TFI is dedicated to preserving and honoring feminist cultural contributions by digitizing materials for public access in our digital archive. At our annual Pop-Up Memory Lab, the public can schedule archival consultations to digitize their materials. For our City Lore Drop-In Memory Lab hours, participants can visit without an appointment and digitize paper materials up to 8.5” x 11” on Saturday, June 22, from 2-5pm. This open session welcomes anyone interested in archiving. Participants will have the opportunity to contribute their newly digitized materials to the existing Addresses Project Collection in the TFI Digital Archive. 

What did it feel like to be there?: 12 Portraits from The Addresses Project presents twelve portraits by photographer Riya Lerner, selected  from a larger multi-disciplinary project entitled The Addresses Project, created by Gwen Shockey with Riya Lerner, featuring lesbian and queer individuals who have dedicated their lives to creating and holding space in New York City from the 1950s to today. The individuals included in the series represent a diverse network of community builders engaged with social and political organizing, mental health advocacy, nightlife, music, journalism, visual art, literature, poetry, performance, research, safer sex and kink practices. Each portrait includes a photograph taken in a significant location for the sitter, along with segments from their oral history interview and selected ephemera from their life and work.
