Artists Animate the Expo 67 Archives is a talking series highlighting artists’ processes of working in/with archives by presenting, discussing, and reflecting on artists’ research-creation processes. Milieux Institute’s Post Image Cluster recently welcomed artists Marije Baalman, Leisure (Meredith Carruthers and Susannah Wesley), and Althea Thauburger to discuss their experience working on In Search of Expo 67.
For those who missed or want to revisit the talks, Post Image Cluster has posted the recordings!

A behind the scenes look at Cheryl Sim as she films her music video piece for the In Search of Expo exhibition. On a beautiful Fall day, Sim went to St Helen’s Island, where most of Expo 67 took place, to film her version of the Universal Exposition theme song “Un Jour, Un Jour.” Dressed as the famed Expo 67 hostesses, Sim explores national costume, women’s identity, and future optimism.
