At a time when artists' archives are being increasingly valued, this study day brings together leading artists, archivists and art historians to explore some key issues. How should artists and archivists deal with 'all this stuff'?
How may we interpret the sketchbooks, ephemera, recordings and other materials that artists leave behind?
When may the artist's archive become an art work itself?
