About

Dissecting the Archive explores the idea of the ‘Archive’ as source of inspiration.

In this exhibition, seventeen artists show how they approached various archival collections and how their analysis of the Archive led them to create original works.

As well as responding to items found in public archive centres, the artists also reflect on the idea of personal archives, made up of gathered objects and information. The exhibition displays encounters with collections of many forms and shapes and a full range of creative ways of engaging with them. The show is curated by MA Drawing Part Time students at UAL Wimbledon College of Arts and includes works from MA Drawing, MA Painting and recent graduates.
