How to commemorate an arts collective that no one knew existed?This session reveals and enacts an ephemeral archive of No. 1 Gold, a formative artistic project of three women of color artists, Gabrielle Civil, Madhu H. Kaza & Rosamond S. King, (aka “those black girls and that Indian one”). Active in the late 1990s through the mid 2000s, No 1. Gold was a creative laboratory for race, creative writing, conceptual and performance art. Inspired by artists such as Félix González-Torres,Coco Fusco, and Fred Wilson, No.1 Gold served as a means for its members’ collective self-education and development as writers, performance and conceptual artists, teachers, thinkers and bodies in public space. 

Part panel, part round table, part live art action, our session will comprise: 1. reflections on No 1. Gold; 2. a live conversation / “explosion of the text” that performs a shifting documentation of an archive continually under revision; and 3. an interactive live art action inspired by No 1. Gold values and practices.
