  • This event has passed.

Invited artists, writers and researchers respond to the notion of practice based archives and the collection of text art held within ours. Including papers, performances, readings and informal panel discussions.

A launch event for the 2019 Text Art Festival, and to mark the close of the RANDOM Archive exhibition.

The day will feature presentations and panel discussions with a number of artists and writers including Lauren Velvick, Helmut Lemke, Penny Anderson, Phil Davenport and Jez Dolan. We will consider the ways in which archives might be spaces used for generating text art and ways in which this art might resist the constraints of the space.
The afternoon panel will examine the people and narratives ‘absented’ from institutional archives and the practitioners who seek to create alternatives and mark out these histories. We will close with the launch of the 2019 Text Festival announcement by Director Tony Trehy, followed by drinks and a final opportunity to view the RANDOM Archive exhibition.

Bury Art Museum’s collections and exhibitions are supported by a range of activities, workshops and events which allow visitors to explore and enjoy the Gallery and Museum further.

Showcasing some of the best of international and local art, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre is the ideal attraction for those looking for a warm, welcoming venue to enjoy art and discover more about Bury’s rich history. Immerse yourself in international collections and exhibitions and engage in a range of activities and events so diverse there is something to suit every visitor.
