The American Photography Archives Group (APAG) presents a two-day Archives Seminar hosted in the ICP School.  The APAG organization was founded by Mary Engel, daughter of Ruth Orkin and Morris Engel, and is dedicated to instructing on archive management.  Their aim is to offer a forum for living artists and guardians of archives to come together to discuss and learn about all aspects of archive management.

 

To complement the ongoing work of APAG, Mary has recently joined with Penelope Dixon, long-time appraiser of photographic collections and archives, to start "The Archive Project." This joint venture will aim to help artists and other archive holders specifically with their own archives in terms of providing consultations, organizational and cataloging help, and assistance in finding placements for the collections. In order to get this project started they are organizing a two-day seminar/workshop that will include sessions on:

  • Organizing an archive from A (archival boxes) to Z (zip lock bags)
  • Conservation/Preservation issues and solutions
  • Legal issues, including copyright and intellectual property discussions
  • Marketing, including social media and website design
  • How an archive gets valued and when and why valuations are necessary
  • How to secure placement in an institution
  • Q&A time with the experts
