The Persistent Visions Exhibition
Musicologist and archivist Eric Hung, Ph.D., will speak on the challenges and opportunities of curating and creating records of musical communities, and the relationship between archival institutions and the communities they document. Documentary director Jeff Krulik, known for his work in both the D.C. heavy metal and punk scenes, will offer his unique perspective, having worked directly with many musicians, fans, and collectors. Krulik also draws on personal experience, having donated his collection of manuscripts, research files, master tapes, and local ephemera to the UMD Libraries Special Collections & University Archives in 2015.

They will discuss the types of materials that are accrued—purposefully or by accident—by community participants, the interest of group members in how their works and genres are exhibited and used by memory institutions, and how these individuals and groups view traditional memory institutions. Given the distrust for established institutions inherent in many performing subcultures, discussion will include innovative agreements between ownership and digital access.
