Conceived by E. G. Crichton, the museum's artist-in-residence, "Migrating Archives" features materials from archives in nearly a dozen countries, with each participating organization providing photographs of artifacts that portray the experiences of one or two queer individuals from the past. Graphic panels and videos bring the materials together to tell vivid stories of both GLBT lives and the archival collections that honor them.
Organizations and collections participating in the "Migrating Archives" exhibition include Adarna, Manila, The Philippines; Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives, Melbourne, Australia; Cassero Gay and Lesbian Center, Bologna, Italy; Fonds Suzan Daniel, Ghent, Belgium; Gay and Lesbian Memory in Action (GALA), Johannesburg, South Africa; Glasgow Women's Library, Glasgow, Scotland; Hall-Carpenter Archives, London; the James Branch Cabell Library, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia; Labrisz, Budapest, Hungary; National Archives, London; and Rukus, London.
