About

This symposium will explore and expand upon issues arising from the research project, Bummock: The Lace Archive. Three artists, Andrew Bracey, Danica Maier and Lucy Renton have spent the last two and half years rummaging, exploring and making. An exhibition at Backlit is the result of a residency that researched unseen parts of the Lace Archive as catalysts for the creation of new artworks.

Accompanying the exhibition, this symposium will give an overview of the Lace Archive held at Nottingham Trent University, it’s history and content; a history of contemporary artists working with Nottingham lace; artists working in and accessing archives and collections; hidden stories of collections, through two cases studies and an artist round table discussion of working with the Lace Archive. At the end of the symposium the delegates will have an opportunity for a special preview of the exhibition with informal discussion with the artists involved and food and drink.

Speakers: Pennina Barnett, Andrew Bracey, Dr. Amanda Briggs-Goode, Deborah Dean, Danica Maier, Lucy Renton, Dr. Sian Vaughan
