“Ephemera” is a term referring to the hand-written materials and printed-matters designed for short-term uses such as memoranda and exhibition tickets. Following the publication of Anthology on Archives in 2021, we asked seven experts to write their thoughts on ephemera that are critical to the constituent materials of artists’ archives and museums.
