    Vivienne Binns

    Vivienne Binns’s first full retrospective, “On and through the Surface,” was an archive in multiple senses. The show contained numerous documents, including photographs, exhibition flyers, postcards, posters, and slideshows representing Binns’s ephemeral and community-based practice from the 1970s and ’80s. These were displayed in a vitrine-cum-architectural intervention (designed by Youssofzay + Hart) that spanned more than 140 feet and operated as a conceptual spine for the show. Further archival images, for instance installation shots of Binns’s inaugural solo show of 1967, were transmitted
