Biographical materials

Series comprises of a set of five binders containing various textual records and graphic material compiled by Michael Bidner. Materials consist of black and white photocopies, collage prints, correspondence, photographs, slides, negatives and transparencies. Bidner organized and structured the binder contents using divider pages with brief paragraphs of text documenting each section. Sections are arranged chronologically and a date is given on the descriptive text. The fifth binder contains only slides and lacks any descriptive notations. Materials relate to high school plays, Bidner’s art catalogues, sales of his work, exhibition invitations, reviews and publicity, awards and grants, studio spaces, and art pieces. Subjects of photographs and slides include the artist, studio space, art pieces, and scenes of art-making or in-progress works.

Various textual records and ephemera

Colour Xerox papers

Series comprises of files pertaining to Michael Bidner’s xerography copy art and the Colour Xerography exhibitions. These materials have been organized by Bidner into 7 curated binders: a binder titled, “Colour Xerox Papers,” a group of five binders each labelled according to the letters X, E, R, O, and X, as well as a “Back-Up” binder of materials. These binders contain documentation of copy art production and exhibition, including original copy art by Bidner and other artists, the Xerox 6500 Colour Copier, artist resumes, press releases, exhibition catalogs and invitations, photocopied newspaper and magazine reviews, photographs, and a few sample prints on fabric. The binders also contain records showing relations between the Xerox Ltd. company and the artists promoting the machine such as project funding, operation costs, technical support and letters from the company to artists and gallery curators. Binders 1 to 6 are subdivided by page separators and have been titled by Bidner; the titles are represented in the content note below. Note that these binders were created by Bidner for personal or professional use and were not shown publically as part of exhibitions. In addition to the binders, this series also includes loose files of similar materials.
