Women's Art Library launches new app

Did you know that the Women's Art Library recently launched a new app to broaden awareness of the broad range of materials that they hold on the work of female artists? These include slides and photographs, artists' statements, newspaper cuttings, exhibition catalogues, CDs, video and audio tapes. As the initial app can only hold 60MB worth of content, they decided to focus initially on seven women artists linked broadly in one way or another to the theme of 'magical realism'. There's a temporary exhibition about how the app was made on at Goldsmiths' Library in London until 13 April 2017.

Taken together, the artworks featured represent the wide diversity in women's artistic journeys. The app's launch certainly reminds me of the need to make our own collections more widely available. Could it be a valuable resource for inspiring your own work?
