The Archive of Documentary Arts actively acquires historical and contemporary documentary projects directly from artists and collectors through purchases and donations. Before submitting your work or collection for consideration, acquaint yourself with our history and collections to determine whether your project is a good match for us. We are most interested in cohesive bodies of work in the final stages of completion. Our staff is small and we receive a large number of inquiries, so it may take time for us to respond to your submission.

We look forward to becoming acquainted with you and your work! Subscribe to our mailing list for future acquisition opportunities and news from the Archive of Documentary Arts.
