About the Book
The seven research-based and project-oriented contemporary artists participating in the Heuristic Memories exhibition at the Cerritos College Art Gallery all treat this theoretical construct of the archive as an artistic medium for their conceptual bodies of work and, in the process, perform themselves agentially as mediums, channeling the ghosts that haunt their respective archival selections. Though some of the artists have personal bio(mytho)graphical connections to their chosen re-constructed, re-constituted, and/or re-considered archives, even those artists whose archive is built solely of their own imagination purposefully blur the lines between objective documentation and subjective fantasy to create meta-critical analyses of archival thought and the related systems of information production and dissemination generated by it in contemporary society.
