XFR STN at the New Museum


Rhizome's digital conservator Ben Fino-Radin has been hard at work with our New Museum colleagues in preparation for XFR STN (Transfer Station), an open-door artist-centered media archiving project that will take over the museum's Fifth Floor gallery space through September 8. Artists, if you have old media stored in the back of your closet - decaying jaz drives, defunct hard drives, or moving image formats - with long-lost art or documentation or work-in-progress, this is your chance to work with a technician armed with top-of-the-line preservation tools. Visit the XFR STN micro-site to learn more about the project and request an appointment. The project begins July 17; we'll be sure to keep you posted on any interesting finds that emerge during the course of the exhibition.
