Music, Art and Architecture Library exhibition that explores activism in classical music extended until February

An exhibition on display now at UBC Library’s Music, Art and Architecture (MAA) Library will soon be making a move to the University of Toronto (UofT) Libraries. Activism in the Arts: I’ve Got U Under My Skin: AIDS & Classical Music is curated by Kevin Madill, Music Librarian at the MAA Library, to explore a moment of activism in the musical arts propelled by the early years of the AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) epidemic. While still in the preliminary stages of planning, the exhibition is slated to be shown at UofT Libraries in the fall.

The exhibition in the Level 3 foyer of the MAA Library.

“In May 18, 1981, the gay newspaper New York Native reports the appearance of a perplexing disease in the community. By June 5, 1981, the first five cases of what would be identified as AIDS are clinically reported,” says Madill. “Through the 1980s, cases surge. Because of government silence and the absence of effective treatment, artists and activists organize. What emerges is not only a strong and powerful political advocacy for health support but also a cultural moment in which music addresses fear, anger, frustration, defiance, longing, and loss.”

When the exhibition launched in September 2022, Madill was especially appreciative of the promotional support for the exhibition he received from PAN (Pacific AIDS Network), which works collaboratively with member organizations and individuals to provide a community-based response to HIV, hepatitis C, and harm reduction: “I contacted PAN very early on about the exhibition and they were very interested in making evident the exhibition across a range of provincial medical organizations focused on HIV.”

As the exhibition continued to draw attention from other institutions online, Madill was invited to write a paper for publication in the peer-reviewed open-access journal, Imaginations: Journal of Cross-Cultural Image Studies.

String Quartet: An AIDS Activist’s Memoir (L. Chan, personal correspondence, May 31, 2022).

The exhibition includes selections such as “All the Rage” (1993) by Bob Ostertag, an experimental album written in response to California governor Pete Wilson’s 1991 veto of pro-gay legislation; “Positive Women: Susan” (1997) for narrator, female chorus, and violin by Janika Vandervelde; and choral compositions from a 1991 competition in Zomba, Malawi, which focus the theme of AIDS prevention.

Visit the exhibition in the Level 3 foyer of the MAA Library in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, on extended display until February 24, 2023.

ASRS Update

Most mechanical issues with ASRS have been resolved, please submit your request.

We continue to experience delays in service repairs due to contractor availability and so some materials may be temporarily inaccessible. The library will obtain any inaccessible ASRS material via interlibrary loan wherever possible.

Please contact the library at ill.lend@ubc.ca with any questions.

Collaboration with the UBC Preservation Unit

Team members in the Digitization Centre (DC) have an understanding and shared responsibility for the care and handling of the collections. To ensure that we are equipped with the right knowledge to handle fragile objects during digitization projects, DC has an ongoing collaboration with the UBC Preservation Unit. Experts from the Unit provide training to ensure that we are equipped with the right skills to safely handle historical objects from UBC’s collections.

Let’s learn a bit more about the Preservation Unit and the collaboration we have with them!

 

UBC Preservation Unit

 

In September 2021, the Preservation Unit launched the Conservation Space, a specialized area dedicated to conservation, preservation and treatment of the UBC Library’s physical materials. Located at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC), it is strategically positioned near the Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) and University Archives to facilitate the secured access between those units.

The Preservation Unit is led by Conservator Anne Lama, and Conservation Technician Hannah McKendry, who are responsible for the conservation work of several projects from RBSC and DC, including materials from all library branches.

Training Collaboration

 

One of the important ways that the Preservation Unit supports the DC is by providing training for best practices in the safe handling of historic collections for new staff and students that join our team every school term.

The Preservation Unit essentially provides support by repairing and treating physical objects and materials to ensure their stability before they can be digitized. Digitization inevitably requires the handling of these objects and materials, but this is where damage or loss is most likely to occur (Mason , 2018). The training, therefore, aims to mitigate these risks.

The training for best practice for handling collections is conducted by Anne Lama, in which she provides a succinct but thorough overview of important aspects to consider when working with historical materials.

Some of the content she covers includes agents of deterioration, which are the factors that pose threats to collections, and their effects. She also talks about best practice pertaining to organization and logistics in order to maintain integrity of the collection, the care during transporting documents, and use of equipment to support items if needed (e.g.  gloves, spatula, soft and antistatic brush, etc.).

One of the highlights of learning in-situ at the Conservation Space is that Anne is able to demonstrate the handling procedures using actual items from the UBC Library – RBSC and showcase some of the preservation work she has completed.

In the training, Anne prepares various types of materials that are most likely to encounter during digitization: books, bound and unbound materials, photographs, and negatives. She demonstrates the recommended ways to manipulate those items. For example, how to hold a large fragile item such as a historical map in a way that allows safe mobility, as well as how to carefully turn the item over when necessary.

Additionally, she showcases a sample of a restoration and conservation work of a Papal bull from 1245 signed by Pope Innocent IV (1243-1254), which features the signatures of the Pope and 13 cardinals, considered among the oldest of its kind in Canada.

The immersive training at the Conservation Space, albeit for a short period, provides staff and students from the DC with a unique understanding of behind the scenes of conservation work and the best practice for handling historic objects. This type of collaboration within UBC provides an enriching experience for participants and develops a stronger appreciation for the work being conducted in different fields of study.
