Archive City: Portraits of Lulu Island


July 17 - August 31, 2008

Richmond Art Gallery is pleased to host a project by Archive City, “a memory collection agency” composed of three Vancouver based artists, Lois Klassen, Cindy Mochizuki and Jaimie Robson. For their project Portraits of Lulu Island, Archive City members have researched and collected various facts and myths about Lulu Island, where the city of Richmond is situated. They have created a memory archive comprised of stories, images, ephemera, tracings and other related research materials, as well as archival boxes which contain the memories of Richmond residents they have interviewed in the form of dioramas.

Archive City explores how memory of a place is preserved and archived. By mimicking bureaucratic procedures and presentation methods, such as creating official-looking documents and an office setting in the gallery, the group members seek to expose the processes involved in translating traces of memory into concrete documents preserved in an archive.

The public is invited to participate in various activities and workshops prepared by Archive City in their office at the Richmond Art Gallery.
