Bummock- Artists in Archives

Bummock refers to the unseen part of an Iceberg, and artists Andrew Bracey Danica Maier and Lucy Renton have been rummaging, exploring and making in unseen parts of the Lace Archive, Nottingham over the last couple of years. This is part of a wider project to create artistic responses to unseen parts of archives, which you can read about here.

The resulting artworks are on display at the Constance Howard Gallery, Deptford Town Hall, part of Goldsmiths University of London, alongside items chosen by the artists from the Goldsmiths Textiles Collections.

The opening reception is tonight (Friday 22nd November) 5-8pm, and will feature a live clarinet performance, and the opportunity to buy the corresponding publication at a discounted rate.

Before that, from 4-5 pm, the three artists will  discuss their project.

Further information about the exhibition is here.

If Lace is your things, Aldgate library holds copies of ‘Lace: the magazine and newsletter of the Lace Guild’¬† from 1970-2017.
