RT Unpublished Material DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 480489810 LA English T1 Creative Time archive, A1 Creative Time, Inc., Brand, Bill., Lutz, Adelle., Wilson, Ann., Gran Fury (Artists' collective), Station House Opera., YR 1973 AB The Creative Time Archive is an extremely diverse collection that comprehensively documents the on-going history of Creative Time, the New York City-based nonprofit arts organization. The collection contains a wealth of materials that document the organization's commitment to and history of commissioning, producing, and presenting adventurous public artworks of all disciplines. The bulk of the printed manuscript material spans from 1973- 1994 but includes documentation through the present. Additionally, there is much media material, particularly from the 1990s through early 2000s. Materials in the Creative Time Archive reflect the intensely experimental and collaborative environment in which these artworks were created, as well as the ever-developing, ever-changing New York City landscape from the 1970s to the present. In addition, the materials reflect a global perspective in their representation of the shifting nature of artistic relations with the world at large. Given the time-based nature of much of the art that Creative Time was presenting, the organization was thorough in their documentation and includes extensive production and promotional materials that document all aspects of the creation, exhibition, and reception of these commissioned artworks. The collection also includes invaluable financial records that reflect how the organization sustains, promotes, and financially supports its mission. Numerous oversize items found at the end of each of the series include design plots, posters, oversize printed matter and other promotional materials housed in boxes and map cases. The archive is divided into eight series (see finding aid).
