White Cube, 144-152 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3TQ

Monday 1st July 2013, 10am-4pm approx

Many arts organisations are interested in locating and exploring their archival heritage.

What are the driving forces behind this interest?

How much archive material survives, where and in what condition?

What can archives tell us about the history of these organisations and how important are they to their contemporary activities?

This study day aims to explore these questions, providing reflections and case studies from academics, curators, artists and archivists.

Organised by ARLISUK & Ireland in partnership with The Glasgow School of Art and Glasgow´s Centre for Contemporary Art. Supported by funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Contributors will include Dr Dominic Paterson (University of Glasgow); Ross Sinclair; Marysia Lewandowska; Dr Julie Bacon (University of Kent); Dr Francis McKee (CCA Director and GSA Research Fellow); Prof Beryl Graham (CRUMB at University of Sunderland); and Donna Romano (NIVAL).
