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.
