|dc.description.abstract||Item contains the text for five wall panels prepared as part of the exhibition "“Why are we saving All these artist publications + Other Galleries stuffs?” The Emergence of Artist-Run Culture in Halifax," curated by Creighton Barrett and Peter Dykhuis. The exhibition presented archival material from the Mezzanine Gallery fonds at NSCAD University and the Eyelevel Gallery fonds and Centre for Art Tapes fonds held by the Dalhousie University Archives. Select documents, posters, and photographs from 1970 to 1984 were intermingled in chronological order for the first time. The exhibition was presented by the Dalhousie Art Gallery from January 22 - April 17, 2016.
Texts prepared for this exhibition include a main panel that introduced the exhibit and four "thematic" panels that introduced clusters of documents which disrupted the chronological orientation of the exhibition. Document clusters were based on quotes from documents in the Eyelevel Gallery fonds and Centre for Art Tapes fonds.
The document cluster titled "The machinery by which we have been moved" also included a card with information about artist interviews included in an audio loop that accompanied a video projection of documents and photographs. The card erroneously omitted information about a radio interview with artist and dub-poet Clifton Joseph that was included in the audio loop.
Panel text was set by Michelle Gallant, Dalhousie Art Gallery.||en_US
