Abstract or Description

Part of the committee devising the Call for 'Glitching the Archive' and selecting the proposal which was awarded to Hannah Kemp-Welch for her project ‘Voicing the Archive.’

Whilst the Women’s Art Library was closed due to the restrictions of the pandemic, artist Hannah Kemp-Welch collaborated with WAL’s curator Dr Althea Greenan to collate packs of photocopied materials relating to artists whose work is represented in the archive. These packs were disseminated via community organisations local to the Women’s Art Library, with an invitation to explore and discuss the packs together.

The project culminated in recorded conversations on park benches, community centres and over the phone. Each participant selected an artist and responded to their work. These recordings were edited into an audio essay or collage, first broadcast on Resonance FM, 12th October 2021.

Shortlisted awardees, who receive a micro-grant, were:

The Agency of Visible Womxn – ‘Voicing Syncopation’

Dr. Alice Correia – South Asian Artists Glitching the Archive,’
