Anne Krinsky: From Absorb to Zoom / An Alphabet of Actions in the Women’s Art Library is a digital print installation with content derived from materials in the Women’s Art Library at Goldsmiths College.
Private view: Saturday, 7 March from 2pm to 4pm
The archive, started in the late 1970’s as an artist-led initiative to enhance public knowledge of the practice, impact and achievement of women in the visual arts, houses unique documentation of women artists’ works. Krinsky’s installation takes inspiration from archived slides, artists’ books, magazines, monographs and posters.
Krinsky is a London-based painter and printmaker who creates site-specific installations in response to archived collections. Her previous installations with archives have been exhibited in library, museum and university settings in the US. Her work is in many collections, including the British Museum, the Boston Public Library, the Graham Gund collection and the U.K. charity, Paintings in Hospitals.
This is her first installation with a UK archive and is funded by Arts Council England, in-kind support from the Thames Barrier Print Studio and a successful Kickstarter campaign that generated donations from around the world.
Sited In two Goldsmiths locations:
Special Collections Reading Room in the Rutherford Building
Open Mon – Fri 10am – 5pm / Wed until 7pm
