Activating the Archive: Contemporary Uses of Visual Archives
Saturday 5 May 2018
11am – 6pm (Doors open at 10.30 am) / £20 – £25 
Tickets here

IC Visual Lab warmly invites you to its upcoming symposium, ACTIVATING THE ARCHIVE: Contemporary Uses of Visual Archives, taking place at the Arnolfini. This one-day symposium explores the many ways archives are activated within the arts through a series of talks with international artists, curators, and researchers.

The possibilities of visual archives sit at the forefront of this event, which is reflected in the work by the invited speakers; Francesca Seravalle, Maja Daniels, Charbel Saad, Vicki Bennett, Thomas Sauvin, and Amak Mahmoodian. All of whom are reinterpreting archival material, building new archives, or facilitating the use of existing archives within their respective practices. This event is supported by the Arts Council of England and in collaboration with Arnolfini.

Read and interview related to this with Vicki Bennett.

People Like Us in Athens

Shadow Libraries: UbuWeb in Athens

16-18 MARCH 2018

Inside & Outside the OCC

What is UbuWeb? Is an archive capable to propose a different sort of art history? 3 days of talks and workshops in order to explore this and other shadow libraries.

People Like Us will be part of an UbuWeb conference in Athens later this month.  It will include artist talks and group discussions, workshops and a WORLD PREMIERE of a work in progress version of our new single screen a/v performance The Mirror.  Yes, we’ve not quite finished it yet (!) but this is too good a platform to not use since UbuWeb is our internet home.  Tickets for The Mirror: http://www.sgt.gr/eng/SPG2098/

More info on the conference and how to attend here: http://www.sgt.gr/eng/SPG2018/
People Like Us will be doing an artist presentation, a workshop about process, and a performance.  All info is at the above url. Continue reading
