This panel discussion, part of New Contemporaries Archives & Identities online symposium explored the use of archives in contemporary visual arts practice in the exploration of identities.
The programme reflected on specific methodologies of how practitioners have used both personal and public repositories to consider their own positions in relation to investigating specific archival material.
Jo Melvin gave the introductory presentation to this panel, on how we handle the archive, identity strategies, and what questions the archive can provoke.
Melvin also chaired the event, which included Duncan Campbell, Althea Greenan and Sunil Gupta. The discussion was followed by an audience Q&A.
