Twentynine Palms, California - Joshua Tree National Park- Current artist-in-residence, Kim Zitzow will discuss methodology and research with respect to her current project at Joshua Tree National Park. The artist constructs archives involving a variety of sources ranging from historic documents to photographs to interviews that take place across a variety of media. She uses the format of archives to tell stories. Zitzow says from her artistic perspective, "the archive is as much a repository as it is a performative process, a living, changeable thing".

Zitzow grew up near Richmond, VA and has a BFA in Sculpture and Extended Media with a minor in Philosophy from Virginia Commonwealth University. She also has an MFA in Metal from the State University of New York at New Palz.

The evening program is at Black Rock Nature Center on Saturday, December 12 at 7:00pm. The event is free and open to the public.
