Living archives study sessions
Join our monthly study groups for your chance to go behind the scenes of Kaldor Public Art Projects.
Go behind the scenes of Kaldor Public Art Projects and delve into 50 years of history though rare objects, original artists’ notes, sketches, and much more!
These intimate sessions are held on the second Thursday of every month, and provide unique access to the rich repository of material in the Kaldor Public Art Projects archives. Each study group is led by experienced archivists, together with members of our Living Archives community. Focusing on a different Kaldor Public Art Project each month, they reveal the people and stories behind the archival objects, and examine the lasting legacy of temporary art projects.
Please note that some of these sessions will be filmed or photographed for archival and promotional purposes. If you do not consent to filming, please let our staff know upon arrival.
