The “Lost and Found” is an archive by default, a place to find your mother, a record of absence through presence, and an “anonymous museum” of unrelated items.
—Soo Kim and Anne Walsh in “Editors Notes,” X-TRA Vol. 2. no. 1
Project X Forum 8: Lost and Found takes Soo Kim and Anne Walsh’s definition as a cue. Invited guests Nao Bustamante and Soo Kim will converse on the subject of “Lost and Found” and it’s role in their work with archives and giving presence to the absent. Bustamante’s recent exhibition at Vincent Price Museum is one avenue of inquiry, but who knows where our journey to the “Lost and Found” will lead us?
HK Zamani will begin the program with a presentation on the associated Project X exhibition, Lost and Found, at PØST in Fall 1998 curated by Soo Kim and Anne Walsh, including a history of PØST, founded by Zamani in 1995.
