A Visual Conversation - Exploring the Archive
Workshop with Abigail Hunt as part of doing together 2023
Tuesday 4 April 2023
doing together is a yearly two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, share practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. doing together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - test out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.
Abigail Hunt, Artist in Residence on the Bristol + Bath Creative R+D Programme invited participants to work with her to unpick and explore the visual and text based archive she has been gathering during her residency, amassed from interviews, events, workshops and walks with others.
Highlighting the generosity of input from shared collaboration, we will work physically with the archive to collectively explore, sift and reconfigure the materials in the manner of a live collaborative collage and through a visual conversation.
