[art meets archive] exhibition

State Records Gallery 2002

Featuring an exhibition of contemporary artworks by:
Michael Fitzjames
International Corporation of Lost Structures
Briefcase Gallery

The idea of the archive is alive and at play today in art, literature and the popular imagination. But what does an archive really do? And what happens when art enters the archive?

[art meets archive] juxtaposes the work of Sydney artists with the State archives collection. A vision of Sydney with two Harbour Bridges, the International Corporation of Lost Structures and a gallery in a briefcase are taking up temporary residence. How will the archive respond?
