Archival Alchemy® with Joyce LeeAnn (livestream)
in collaboration with FADO Performance Art Centre
Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 7:00 pm EDT

AGYU and FADO Performance Art Centre presented an on-line artist engagement with Joyce LeeAnn as part of the solo exhibition Jess Dobkin’s Wetrospective. During our time together, Joyce LeeAnn led us on a journey to explore archival processing as performance art.

Joyce LeeAnn is a certified archivist, an interdisciplinary artist, and the founder of Archival Alchemy®. As an archivist, she has worked for a community archive, a corporate archive, a large public library, and a prestigious museum. However, her archival praxis began as a young girl, and as an act of decolonization she centers her innate methods. Through her artistic projects, she is creating an archive of everything that she has conquered and is overcoming. This is the essence of Archival Alchemy®. Created in 2017 and cultivated directly from Joyce LeeAnn’s practice, Archival Alchemy® is a small business that supports institutions and artists to activate and enrich archives.

This artist engagement was presented in community with the AGYU as part of a constellation of talks, performances and public engagements for Jess Dobkin’s Wetrospective.
