About

LIFT, engage and ICCE Goldsmiths, University of London are proud to announce Past Is Prologue, a public seminar exploring the ways in which artists re-animate archive material such as photographs, film, artefacts and oral histories and use these collections as stimulus for new work. The LIFT archives and engage's Resource of gallery education material are housed in Goldsmith's Library. Over a day of dialogues and presentations, key artists across a diverse range of art forms will share how they have used letters, faxes, objects from past shows and events to inspire them to create new artistic works - ranging from live art, dance, film and music. Past Is Prologue will see an interrogation of the various ways artists respond to and are inspired by archive materials over panel and breakout discussions, as well as artistic presentations in music and film. Key note speakers and presentations for the day include artists Tim Etchells, Richard Wentworth, Siobhan Davies, Barby Asante and Sue Mayo, Sarah Whatley (Director of Centre for Dance Research - C-DaRE), Curator Archive Gallery Nayia Yiakoumaki (Whitechapel Gallery) and artist and researcher Eileen Hogan. The day will be chaired by Director of the Whitworth Art Gallery Maria Balshaw.
