Nemser (Cindy) Papers
Series III. Interviews and other sound recordings, 1969-2006 4.15 Linear Feet (9 boxes)
Selected interviews and other sound recordings : 1969-2006

Series III contains interviews conducted by Cindy Nemser, along with other sound recordings made by Nemser at panel discussions and art conferences. The interviews are mainly with artists or spouses of artists. Many of these interviews were conducted as research for journal articles or for Nemser's book, Art Talk: Conversations with 12 Women Artists (1975, 1995). Journal articles created from these interviews were usually published in the journals Art in America, Feminist Art Journal, or Arts Magazine. Some interviews were broadcast on W.B.A.I. Free Speech Radio. Recordings are on reel-to-reel tapes, cassette tapes, and sound discs. Some original housing contains more extensive descriptions of recordings. Audio recordings are unavailable until reformatted.
Arrangement
This series is arranged in alphabetical order. Arrangement reflects the original order of Nemser's inventory. Notes from the original inventory were retained when available. Some recordings are duplicated on multiple formats and some items contain more than one recording.
