Archives of the Avant-Garde
A Franklin Furnace Project
Supported by New York Foundation for the Arts and The Cowles Charitable Trust

Franklin Furnace’s Archives of the Avant-Garde project received support in 2000 from the New York Foundation for the Arts and The Cowles Charitable Trust, enabling us to create a Location Database of the archives of art spaces, living and defunct, founded after 1960 in and around New York City. We organized groups into categories such as Alternative Spaces, Group or Collective, Gallery Spaces, Nightspots, Periodicals, Film/Video, Theater and Other to accommodate the wide variety of forms avant-garde groups have taken and are still taking!

In the spring of 2004, Franklin Furnace contributed this database to the Art Spaces Archives Project, an initiative founded by a consortium of alternative art organizations which is expanding its Location Database nationally, and gathering virtual resources:http://www.as-ap.org
