CoCA Archives Project
CoCA Archives Project was launched in 2013 as a way to preserve, catalog and share our unique collection of printed materials, slides, video and other materials gathered over the past four decades. To date, we have created an assessment of the collection, worked to preserve the materials, written a Finding Aid, digitized posters, videos and slides and so much more.
In January 2016, we launched the humble beginnings of a digital catalog for public access as part of our 35th anniversary celebrations with eight collections that span our history and illustrate CoCA's influence on the contemporary art world. With the support of a 4Culture grant we have expanded the catalog to include 20 exhibitions and events. Additional exhibitions are currently being processed and will be added in the next few months.
We look forward to being able to share the 200 major exhibitions (and hundreds of additional exhibitions and events) and the work of over 3,000 artists whom CoCA has presented in the past 36 years.
