In the MOCA GA Education Resource Center

In April 2010, Atlanta art collective John Q presented Memory Flash - a four-part series of installations and interventions exploring the archives of queer Atlanta through the use of public space. The time-based components of Memory Flash performance, sound, film, and memory itself encircled each other in unexpected ways during (and after) the event. And each of these time-based components revealed relations to the idea of space.

Andy Ditzler's artist talk examines the connections in Memory Flash. The talk incorporates texts and stories, field recordings, live sound, and 16mm film projection including Andy Warhol's Screen Test films to examine issues of memory, time, performance, and space, as well as the artistic influences on Memory Flash.

Discursive Documents: Performing the Catalogue, will be open through January 8, 2011
