Live Art, Feminism and the Archive

We are working with the artist and academic Lois Weaver of Queen Mary University of London and PhD candidate Ellie Roberts on a research, dialogue and mapping project, developing the materials we hold on Feminist practices in our Study Room research facility and creating new user guides and online resources.

Lois is conducting a number of dialogue events, including open ‘Long Table’ discussions designed to share knowledge and shed new light on contemporary and historical feminist practitioners, particularly those left out of official histories or that have been unrecorded or forgotten about.

Alongside these public events, we are also organising invite-only ‘Coffee Table’ discussions with small groups of invited academics, archivists, artists and writers to draw attention to ‘invisible’ practices, and explore the ways in which we could expand knowledge of, and access to, Feminist practices within research culture and pedagogical structures.
Supported by Creativeworks London, as part of a project to enhance LADA’s Study Room holdings on Live Art and Feminism.

We are looking for a better quality image for this page or to replace it if it's missing.
