This series comprises multimedia artwork, artifacts, and documentation of artwork and performances created by Tamblyn, or co-created by Tamblyn and others.

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series contains a wide-ranging collection of brochures, clippings, flyers, press releases, and other printed materials collected by Tamblyn, documenting various conferences, colloquia, and workshop relating to the arts. This series also contains materials documenting performances, exhibits, and artists. This subseries is particularly strong in materials from the San Francisco Bay area from the 1990s. Some of these materials are related to Tamblyn's long-term interests in specific art works, artists, or issues affecting the art community. In particular, she collected material documenting censorship in the arts in 1990, especially the debate over works by Robert Mapplethorpe. This series also contains videorecordings and photographic prints.
For material collected by Tamblyn for conferences, workshops, symposia, lectures, and festivals that she participated in, see Series 5.
