In The Writing of History (1988), Michel de Certeau famously outlines how claims to history and truth act as apparatuses for the contemporary acquisition and execution of power. Contemporary historians, active in the process of interpreting traces of the past, unavoidably insert present and personal stakes into distant, once-embodied events. Historiographic operations therefore write their own contemporary narratives, rather than providing clear-cut access to bygone manifestations.
Using de Certeau's insight as a point of departure, art( i f)ACTS examines historiography as a radical practice: an active process with the potential to unfold new possibilities for being and knowing, or an exit strategy in response to institutionalized narratives and power relations.
The exhibition, art( i f)ACTS, emerges as part of the Winter 2017 AGYU Curatorial Intensive, a partnership with York's Department of Visual Art and Art History. Curated by MA Art History candidate Belinda Ho-Yan Kwan, mentored by AGYU staff, art( i f)ACTS examines the AGYU collection as a site of ongoing historiography and a host of varying temporal forces.

Cambridge-based artist Gary Kirkham is fulfilling a one-month residency at our Preston Gallery location. Fascinated by pre-digital special effects, where worlds were created using miniatures, painted glass and optical illusions, Kirkham will be experimenting with various methods to project live onto 3D objects, floors, and bodies. In blending reality and illusion, his residency research will focus on projection as a performative action, rather than as a residual documentation.
