reading collections: The African-Caribbean, Asian & African Art in Britain Archive

A reading group focusing on the African-Caribbean, Asian & African Art in Britain Archive, part of the Special Collections at Chelsea College of Arts Library, has been relaunched for 2017/18, following a successful pilot series of three meetings held last year.

The Reading Group is led by Rahul Patel, Associate Lecturer, and supported by Gustavo Grandal Montero, Academic Support Librarian, in collaboration with UAL Academic Support.

There will be 5 sessions in 2017/18; all the readings are taken from the Archive, and so give students a greater understanding of the reasons for the establishment of the archive, its content, and the significance of primary documentation and its curation in relation to the representation of potentially marginalised groups.

Please visit Academic Support online to RSVP the next session on Wednesday 14th March 2018, 5 – 7pm at LCC, Room WG28 B&C.
