Would you like to know more about the ways in which contemporary artists have responded to Nottingham's Lace Archive? If so, there's a symposium coming up on 26 January that might be of interest to you. It's to be held at the Backlit Gallery, where'll be an opportunity for a special preview of the exhibition and a chance to talk to the artists over food and drink.
Andrew Bracey, Danica Maier and Lucy Renton have been rummaging through the archive, uncovering parts of it not normally seen by the public and making new works that will be displayed alongside the original material. This is just one of several projects by Bummock: Artists in Archives: they've also worked with the Tennyson Research Centre in Lincoln, the George Bool collection at University College Cork and the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts in London.
If you're inspired by their work, why not come down and see the textile designs we have in our own archives at BCU?
