Welcome to the Center for Archival Interpretation.

We are a non-profit research organization dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge about how archives are created, utilized, and perceived.

Our network was founded earlier this year in New York, and has since last week opened a pop-up outpost on the 7th floor of the former Western Costume Building on 939 South Broadway here in DTLA, in collaboration with our partners here, including the Center for Land Use Interpretation, the Getty Research Institute, O-Town House Gallery, the UCLA Film & Television Archive, Iron Mountain, the Center for Visual Music, the American Film Institute, the Academy for Motion Pictures Archive, the Margaret Herrick Library, Japan House, Hennessey & Ingalls Books, Artbook at Hauser & Wirth LA, Amoeba Music, and Hollywood Forever Cemetary & Theater, to name a few.

Archives, as objects and artifacts, carry traces. And so do the people, machinery, infrastructure, and policy that affect their creation, access, and interpretation.

The quality of physical objects to remain, while still imbued with memory and meaning, give artifacts the ability to carry traces of human existence and history, as associated with philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s explorations of embodied perception2 in Phenomenology of Perception (1945). Through our interactions with objects, we leave imprints of our intentions, actions, and experiences; and these traces become embedded within the objects themselves. These traces, in turn, can evoke memories, emotions, and a sense of personal or cultural significance when encountered by others.
