Visitors explore material from Tate's archive as part of a learning event

The Archival Impulse study day – Part 1

The Archival Impulse study day – Part 2

Bringing together leading artists, archivists and theorists, this study day explores why the archive has become a central issue in contemporary artistic strategy and examines how the archive has been figured, contested and constructed by artists. It will also examine a range of theoretical thinking and critical engagement with the past in order to provide a creative space for the future.
