“The archivization produces as much as it records the event.” – Jacques Derrida, Archive Fever
Winding through the Concourse Gallery, north stairwell, and sporadically throughout campus, Archive Fever is an interpretation of MCAD’s collection of art and memorabilia. Like the hallucinations of a fever dream, artists Christopher Alday, Nathan Lewis, and Jo Yeh combine illustrations, prints, photographs, audio, and more to transport you into and through more than 125 years of history.
