||Judson Memorial Church Archive
||The Judson Memorial Church's (Washington Square, New York, New York) archive spans
nearly two centuries (1839-2001). During that time, it has been a center of worship
and of social activism such as civil rights, anti-war, reproductive rights, and the
women's movement. In addition, it became a center for avant-garde art ranging from
its role in the artistic revolt against Abstract Expressionism, to postmodern dance
at the Judson Dance Theater, to the Judson Poets Theater. These aspects are documented
in the papers, photographs, and other materials that comprise the collection. Items
include various church records and meeting minutes, as well as materials regarding
such artists as: Claes Oldenburg, Jim Dine, Lucinda Childs, Yvonne Rainer, Nam June
Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Yoko Ono, Meredith Monk, and many others.
