WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In this gallery exhibition, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver of Split Britches re-purpose their own archival material from the last 20 years to explore the issues of having, holding, and letting go. Remembering Hurricane Sandy, they note that you can collect for years but it only takes one storm to wash everything away. Just as a storm exposes what's underneath the surface of a once bright and shiny thing, "Desperate Archives" reveals the infrastructure of the Split Britches' creative process by highlighting the individual contributions made by many collaborators.
