The Legacy of Interaction: Artists at the Imperial War Museum 1981–2007

2008

Abstract

The idea that artists might reinvigorate and activate collections in new ways no longer seems a radical concept, but this understanding of the potential of collaborations between artists and archives was not always so widespread. This paper – based on a conversation held at the Archival Impulse Study Day at Tate Britain in November 2007 – explores the role played by Angela Weight as Keeper of the Department of Art at the Imperial War Museum between 1981 and 2005 in commissioning artists to work alongside the museum’s collections and archives.
