The Feature Hudson Foundation (FHF) is set up as a nonprofit 501(3) organization dedicated to collecting, exhibiting, promoting, sustaining and maintaining the archives and art of Feature Inc. and Hudson. The archives contain published and unpublished writings, correspondence, photographs, moving image material, gallery files, publications and exhibition ephemera that illuminate Feature's program and Hudson's art as well as a large part of his library: magazines, books, exhibition catalogs, newspapers.
Our mission is to ensure the ongoing exposure to, and understanding of, Hudson's creative legacy and vision. To obtain our goal, we promote Feature's and Hudson's work internationally through programming. which includes: exhibitions, lectures, conferences, performances, collaborating on exhibitions and publications as well as presenting artists who were of interest to Hudson.
We started organizing and digitizing thousands of rich visual and textual documentations of Hudson's life and work, to make them available to museums, exhibitions, educational institutions and the general public. Our work to establish a complete catalogue continues and the result of ongoing research will be progressively made available online through the FHF online catalogue.
