This summer the New Museum is hosting XFR STN (Transfer Station), a public artist-centered media archiving project throughout its fifth floor gallery space. The space will be used to preserve creative media stored in obsolete formats like VHS tapes, and will informally show the material that is being transferred.

The team behind the project are accepting requests from the public for digital preservation that will be showcased within the museum and will also be available online through The Internet Archive, an online library whose mission includes offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format.

Further information can be found on the New Museum’s website here.

XFR STN (Transfer Station) runs from July 17th to September 8th 2013 at the New Museum, New York.
