CONVERSATION WITH ARCHIVIST GEOFFREY WEXLER
Pondering the inner life of a Portland-based artist discovered within the pages of his diary.
Geoffrey Wexler is an archivist and artist friend who made a strong impression on me early in my career. Geoff created a meticulous foundation for the ongoing development of the Robert Wilson Archives, and, I am sure, unknowingly inspired me to be detail-driven in an artful way. I have always admired his aesthetic sensibility and how he managed to incorporate an artist’s eye into the structure of Robert Wilson’s collection. Geoffrey Wexler is Library Director at the Oregon Historical Society.
