Artists who participate in The Minds I
are invited to contribute their drawings to The Minds I
Archive. This collection now has over 800 drawings.
The donated work is documented, catalogued and stored. Exhibitions are curated from it. The complete archive will be donated to a museum or museums.The Minds I
Archive is an extended record of The Minds I
project. It also functions both as a collection of unique drawings and as a single body of work varied, complex, and powerful together. The Archive represents the conversation that is at the heart of The Minds I
The Archive holds work by a range of artists, differing in discipline, media, philosophy, ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, age, region, status (economic, art world, etc.). This reflects a community and is part of building that community.
This project functions outside money. The work is not for sale. The caliber is artistic, not economic. The project is funded to break even.
The Archive is a leveler. All Minds I
participants are included (unless they choose not to be). Their work is equally valued and equally respected. So, the entire Archive will go to relevant institutions. No ranking. No cherry picking. Everyone steps over the velvet rope together.Participating Artists:Candida AlarezJoanne AonoKristine AonoClaire AshleyKaren AzarniaApril BehnkeJerry BleemDeborah BoardmanLarissa BortehJudith BrotmanPaola CabalKristin CalabreseSteven CarrelliEdmund ChiaHyeGyeong ChoiJan Christopher-BurksonSussanna CoffeyJeane CohenSarah CrowPaula CrownPaul DAmatoPerry DanisDana DegiulioKatherine DesjardinsJosh DihleAssaf EfframSusanne DoremusBob FaustJudith GeichmanMatthew GirsonMichelle GrabnerChris GrieshaberMagalie GuerinDanny GuilesCarrie GundersdorfDann GunnPhilip HartiganAnne HarrisNancy HejnaRiely HendersonTom HerzbergFatimah HijjawiLindsey HookSteve HusbySeth HunterRichard HydeHeesu JeonJames KaoAnna KunzJason LazarusEric LebofskyLouise LeBourgeoisJin LeeRiva LehrerGeorge LiebertJim LutesIgnacio ManriqueAubrey MansonNorbert MarszalekGrace MattinglyBobbi MeierJohn MetidoJeffly Gabriela MolinaSolomon Salim MooreJudith MullenAya NakamuraKelly NeibertBetsy OdomSabina OttTony PhilipsMelissa PinneyKim PiotrrowskiDylan RabeJudith RaphaelCeleste RaponeDarrell RobertsMario RomanoAllison RuttanMelody SranitiDaniel SchmidtAna SegoviaYongxuan ShaoViki SiliunasCamille SilvermanJenn SmithEdra SotoKevin StuartJennifer TaylorChris ToepferKeith TolchMichael Van ZealMaria VergaraAllison WadeErin WashingtonMichelle WatsonJay WolkeCaleb YonoGwendolyn ZabickiMary Lou Zelazny
