Library and Archives 2013

The largest post-1900 British fine art archive in the world, the Tate Archive represents a treasure trove of hidden objects including diaries, sketchbooks, letters, photographs and ephemera. Delving into this vast resource to draw out objects and ideas of interest, we will look back at the collection in relation to time and artists’ practice. How do artists and art works speak to each other across time? Where do the boundaries between art object and archival relic lie? What role does collecting and collating have in artists’ practice?

With exclusive access to the new Digital Learning Studio and the Library and Archive, this study day will support you to engage with Tate’s British art collection and the new chronological re-hang at Tate Britain through the broader context of art and archive.
