Archivist update: Historic Halloween

Archivist update: Historic Halloween

In honor of Halloween, we pulled together a special Archivist Update featuring classic moments spanning the years 1939-1982, including a multiple exposure made by Eddie Adams featuring his daughter Susan, a congregation of little E.T.'s attempting to "phone home" and children from New York’s Little Italy playing Halloween games.

Nat Castañeda is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. A California native, Castañeda works primarily in video and collage, with an emphasis on tactile intimacy with her materials remaining an important aspect of all her projects. Common issues in Castañeda’s work are the conflating of iconography and pornography, the questioning of traditional gender binaries, and the role of technology within personal narratives. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts and has shown at venues such as El Museo del Barrio and Electronic Arts Intermix. In addition to her art practice, Castañeda currently works at The Associated Press where she leads a team that curates AP's online archive of historic and contemporary photojournalism. Castañeda’s photography has appeared in the New York Times,U.S. News & World Report and USA Today.
