The exhibition Imposing Order presents work by contemporary photographers who examine archival practices. Diverse in approach and subject matter, these photographers share an interest in the ways in which art and artifacts are stored, catalogued, and displayed. Join artists Barnes, Hall, and Poor, along with exhibition curators Garcia and Whitlock, to discuss the archive and its relation to artistic practice.
