What is artistic research? What is it like to step into the Folger as a contemporary artist? Join us for a virtual conversation with Folger Institute fellows Alexander D’Agostino (‘22-23) and Mindy Stricke (‘18-19) on how they integrate collections research and creative process. Learn about their strategies, surprising discoveries, and how you too can become a Folger researcher.
This conversation will be moderated by Abbie Weinberg, Research and Reference Librarian, with welcoming remarks from Patricia Akhimie, incoming Director of the Folger Institute.
Alexander D’Agostino is an interdisciplinary artist and teacher based in Baltimore, Maryland.
Mindy Stricke is an interdisciplinary artist mapping a new geography of authenticity and belonging.
