The resource room
The archive is a real existing thing within the resource room at Transmission. This room also contains a library and a collection of slides and other visual material left at the gallery by artists for viewing by visiting curators or other researchers in the days before digital documentation. A physical encounter with archival, promotional and research materials, as well as with the art on display and the gallery committee, was a key part of the preInternet Transmission experience. Such an encounter enabled different kinds of collisions to occur between artifacts, people and ideas than might now take place in the digital era.
