Les Enluminures New York is back and in full swing. Join us for a series of exciting and innovative events throughout the year. Our inaugural exhibition this fall "Archive Fever - Now" takes Jacques Derrida's seminal essay "Archive Fever" (1995) as a starting point to explore the idea of the archive in art from the Middle Ages to the present. It brings together nineteenth-century French photographs from the infancy of the medium, with medieval manuscripts and seminal contemporary photographers, Stan Douglas, Robert Polidori and Thomas Ruff, investigating the notion of the archives through different media over time
