The online exhibition ARCHIVING HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?: Process Over Product was on view October 12 – November 25, 2020, presented by the New Media Artspace at Baruch College and generously sponsored by the Wasserman Jewish Studies Center. The exhibition has been archived online. Click here to view it.
The New Media Artspace presents Archiving HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?: Process Over Product, an online exhibition that initiates a web-based digital archive of works by the collective HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? (also known as the YAMS Collective). By emphasizing “process over product,” Archiving HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? delves into the ongoing evolution of artworks in their collective making. The exhibition—which is being produced and conceived in a real-time collaboration with the New Media Artspace Student Docent Team and will evolve as the semester progresses—shows how both artworks and the archives they comprise are always negotiated in a constant flux of incompletion and reinvention.
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the gallery spaces in the Newman Library are closed to the public until further notice.
The New Media Artspace is a teaching exhibition space in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Baruch College, CUNY. Housed in the Newman Library, the New Media Artspace showcases curated experimental media and interdisciplinary artworks by international artists, students, alumni, and faculty.
