Malachi Ritscher was first presented as Public Collectors' contribution to the 2014 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In addition to numerous never before exhibited materials drawn from the Ritscher collection at Creative Audio Archive, Malachi Ritscher included objects borrowed from close friends and others associated with the late documentarian and activist. Objects include Ritscher's DAT recorder, a sign made to quiet people standing near his recording equipment during concerts, recordings, ephemera connected to concerts he documented, and unpublished photos taken by Ritscher. The Chicago iteration of Malachi Ritscher will include additional materials from the Creative Audio Archive, and will be accompanied by copies of a free essay booklet that was first produced for the Whitney Biennial.
