About the event

The Christian Palestinian Archive (CPA) is a growing collection of scans of archival documents, documenting the personal histories of the Christian Palestinian community worldwide. The CPA was founded in 2009 by Guez, and includes today thousands of scans of historical images. Unlike other archives, the CPA is not engaged in material conservation, and all “original” photographs are sent to their owners after being scanned and added to the archive.

On select Thursdays in April and May, an open call will be held in the James Gallery for members of the local Christian Palestinian community to submit their photographs and materials for the archive.

If you are unable to attend an open call but would like to contribute to the archive, please contact [email protected].

All sessions will be led by Chelsea Haines, curator of Christian Palestinian Archive: A Project by Dor Guez.

Open Call Dates:

Thu, April 14, 12–3pm

Thu, April 28, 12–3pm

Thu, May 19, 12–3pm

Thu, May 26, 12–3pm

Cosponsored by the Mediating the Archive Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research in the Humanities at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and supported in part by Artis Foundation for Contemporary Art.
