We create dynamic relationships between archives and artists.


The Chicago Archives + Artists Projects is a year-long initiative to highlight Chicago archives and special collections that align with the mission of Sixty Inches From Center in giving space to voices on the margins. Led by Chicago-based writers and artists, the project explores twelve archives across the city via a monthly online feature and cumulative guide-book, a series of public programs and new artist commissions.
