The Vasari Project and the Artist as Archive @ Coral Gables Museum -in person & via Zoom

Presenters: Barbara N. Young, art librarian, curator, and consultant & Stephanie Marie Garcia, Head of Special Collections & Archives, Miami-Dade Public Library System. This presentation focuses on the Vasari Project, a living archive housed at the Main Library of the Miami-Dade Public Library System, which documents the lives and practices of South Florida arts from 1945 to the present. In the context of our current exhibition, A Matter of Time; Examining Forty Years of AIDS While Living Through a Pandemic, the speakers will explore Miami artists and their intersection with the critical years of AIDS alongside the challenges of preserving history, acknowledging absent moments, and the vital need to remember the past.
