Binder Archives is a portable exhibition that is designed to travel with the greatest of ease. In Binder Archive, three-ring binders and their European equivalents are used as a mode of presenting or containing large quantities of material and information. For this project, individual artists, exhibition organizers, creative people, archivists and groups have produced binders that they have filled with photographs, drawings, documentation, photocopies, printed ephemera, tactile objects, or any other material that can be punched with with three holes or stored in a binder. Each binder is a self-contained project or archive of a person's or group's work. Some of these individual binders contain as much material as one might expect to find in an entire exhibit or a book. Viewers can freely handle the binders just as they might browse through books in a reference library.
