Series 10: Audiovisual, approximately 1892-2004

Identifier: 10

  • Staff Only

Scope and Contents note

Primarily photographs, but also audioreels, audiocassettes, and videocassettes, all relating to an artist or and activity at the Arts Club. Most photographs were culled from other series: Exhibitions, Drama and Films, Lectures and Receptions, and Music. They are primarily of artists, artwork, and musicians. The audio material is mostly live recordings of lectures, although there are also some recordings off the radio of reviews of exhibits. Some of the video material is live recordings of lectures or performances; a great deal of the video collection came with the papers documenting the Arts Club's Fluxus Exhibit at the end of 1993. These videos may or may not have been part of the exhibit installations. See also Series 12: Scrapbooks, for more photographs (especially of Arts Club facilities). Most audio and video recordings have been digitized.
