XFR STN at New Museum Of Contemporary Art

XFR STN at New Museum Of Contemporary Art

In collaboration with the Monday/Wednesday/Friday Video Club, this exhibition/lab will highlight the need for media migration services to preserve creative production. The project will provide the public with transferring services for artist-originated content.

“XFR STN” initially arose from the need to preserve the Monday/Wednesday/Friday Video Club distribution project. MWF was a co- op “store” of the artists ́ group Colab (Collaborative Projects, Inc.), directed by Alan Moore and Michael Carter from 1986–2000, which showed and sold artists’ and independent films and videos on VHS at consumer prices.

The “XFR STN” at the New Museum will also address the wider need in the community of artists for access to media migration services as a means to preserve creative production. In addition to digitizing a portion of MWF Video Club’s collection (currently housed in a storage unit in Staten Island), the “XFR STN” will be used to preserve various materials from the New Museum’s own rich archive (including formats such as U-matic and audio tapes). In keeping with the original policies of the MWF Video Club, “XFR STN” will be open to any artist-originated content (analog or digital tape) whose format has become obsolete. The exhibition/lab will operate publically, informally exhibiting the material that is transferred, as well as rendering it available online through the platform of an online archive.
