Archiving the Artist study day

Organised by ARLIS\UK & Ireland Art Archives Committee in partnership with Tate.

At a time when artists' archives are being increasingly valued, this study day brings together leading artists, archivists and art historians to explore some key issues. How should artists and archivists deal with 'all this stuff'? How may we interpret the sketchbooks, ephemera, recordings and other materials that artists leave behind? When may the artist's archive become an art work itself? Speakers include: Artists Jane & Louise Wilson and David Batchelor; Anna McNally (former Tate Archivist and Naum Gabo cataloger); biographer Jane Stevenson; Thanasis Velios and Antony Hudek from the John Latham Archive (Flat Time House) and Matthew Hearn from Locus+. 

Dr Catherine Moriarty, Curator of the Design Archives, will be chairing the morning session. This event is the follow up to a conference held at the end of 2007, the papers for which are published on Tate Papers and include Moriarty's conversation 'The Legacy of Interaction: Artists at the Imperial War Museum 1981-2007' with Angela Weight.
