In June 2009, Jen Delos Reyes curated Public Document Files (PDF) at Public Space One. The core of the exhibition consisted of a filing cabinet containing files about publicly engaged art practices contributed by a variety of artists. The filing cabinet has remained in our gallery and is now the central part of the Public Space One resources collection.
The exhibition was the beginning of an ongoing understanding and working relationship with the PDFs. The physical files have been digitized, and they are available online. For information about accessing the digitized files, see the PDF Guide.
The PDF Resource is ever evolving. Download them; read them; come discover them. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, and we would love to hear what you have to say about them. Let us know if you have any ideas for the future of the Public Document Files.
We will continue to add to and expand our resources. Check back soon.
