The International Boondocks is the latest edition of an ongoing investigation of the relationship between the archive and the studio being undertaken by faculty and students at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Bordeaux, and the Art School at CalArts.
This gathering follows a three day seminar which took place in Bordeaux two years ago. Now, Patricia Falguieres and Michel Aphesboro will bring 5 students from Bordeaux to LA to continue the conversation with Chiara Giovando and Fiona Connor and together they will research various archives and archive driven spaces in the LA area including UCLA Fowler, The Box, ONE Archive, and the Getty Research Institute. The workshop will include a number of off-campus field trips and may extend past posted hours. It will include 5 students from Bordeaux and up to 10 from CalArts.
