Speakers: Dr Althea Greenan (Women’s Art Library curator)
Lauren Craig and Gina Nembhard (members of X Marks the Spot)

2-5pm, Friday March 6th 2020

Women’s Art Library, Special Collections, Rutherford Building, Goldsmiths, Lewisham Way, New Cross, London, SE14 6NW

This workshop will be led by Althea Greenan, archivist of the Women’s Art Library, along with Lauren Craig and Gina Nembhard. As members of X Marks the Spot, an art and archive research collective, Craig and Nembhard have explored the Women of Colour Index held at the Women’s Art Library, as well as the Jo Spence archive.

Workshop members will examine material in the Women’s Art Library and consider how archivists, artists and activists have sought to creatively engage with the collection. The workshop will ask key questions about how to approach collaborative practice through its archival traces.

The Women’s Art Library is a unique collection of material on women artists, with a growing programme of creative interventions by artists, curators, writers and archivists.
