Women and the Archive: A Partial Disclosure

Women and the Archive: A Partial Disclosure presented four perspectives on the relationship between women and the archive in contemporary artistic production. Artists, collectives and researchers using archives as source material or constituting archives as their primary activity were invited to present their rarely shown collections of photographs, videos and audio recordings around women of artistic, social and political importance. Issues of provenance, methodology, property and historicisation were addressed throughout the afternoon via presentations, screenings, performances and a panel discussion.

This event was devised as part of The Street, a year-long series of artists’ commissions by the Whitechapel Gallery on and around Wentworth Street. Women and the Archive: A Partial Disclosure was organised in partnership with The Women’s Library.
