What struck me immediately in my chat with Dr. Julia Polyck-O’Neill is her attentiveness to relationality’s many frequencies. Her writing on conceptualism’s legacies and Canadian avant-garde scenes, particularly the Kootenay School of Writing, is necessitated by relations, whether building trust with her research subjects, or investigating the porousness between media and form in artists’ interdisciplinary practices. I was thrilled to learn more about Julia’s current research on digital and feminist interventions into preservation protocols for artists’ archives, which she is pursuing as a postdoctoral project at York University’s Sensorium Centre. She was generous to share some of her emerging revelations on archival intimacies, like being invited to pore over the private collection of poet Lisa Robertson, and oddities (including an archived pizza box!).
