Migrant Archives is [NAME]’s online and physical repository for archives that cannot be housed in their places of origin due to political reasons or a lack of infrastructural resources, such as material related to ephemeral artistic practices of 1980s Cuba. Organized collaboratively with urban geographer Stephanie Wakefield, Practices for a Thawing World is a long-term Miami-based and globally networked lab which produces field guides for engaging with rapidly changing global conditions.
