Daylighting

 

We thought you might be interested in Daylighting, a four-day programme of events coming up here at Wellcome Collection. Throughout the programme we will explore the interconnections of art, activism, performance, politics, health and print, with a live printing workshop, discussions, readings and collective writing. For full details of the programme have a look at the website:

All the events will consider how we can challenge existing archives and systems of knowledge, change narratives and amplify new voices. At Daylighting’s core is the production of DAYLIGHT, a collaborative artwork in the form of a newspaper that explores the presence of womxn through their art, thinking and speculations.

We thought list members might be particularly interested in these two events:

Index as Time Capsule

Friday 19 October 2018

14:00 – 15:30

Join this discussion led by the founders of the Women of Colour Index Reading Group, who will talk about this unique archive that charts the emergence of women of colour artists during the 1980s and 1990s. For some of these people, the Index is the only written record of their work. This session will be focused on British artist Joy Gregory, who will join us to discuss her current work and how the Index acts like a ‘time capsule’.

Archives and Womxn’s Knowledge

Friday 19 October 2018

15:30 – 17:00

Join Wellcome Collection archivists and librarians as they share specially selected materials from our collections. View images and read texts that highlight the ways that womxn are included, excluded, catalogued and classified. There will be a panel discussion about systems of classification and how we can rethink the archives we have inherited.
