From Absorb to Zoom: An Alphabet of Actions in the Women’s Art Library is a site-specific collaborative print installation that I will create with the Women’s Art Library at Goldsmiths College. 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 visual arts -- houses unique documentation of women artists’ works. It remains open to any and all women artists. 

My installation, in March 2015, will take inspiration from archived slides, artists’ books, magazines, monographs and posters and will be installed in two locations on the Goldsmiths' campus. Through my research, project blog and installation, I will address the underrepresentation of women in art history and highlight this historically important but under recognized resource. In conjunction with my research, I will post a blog featuring recent works by artists with documentation in the Women's Art Library to virtually update the archive. 

This is my first project with a UK archive -- I previously have created projects with archived collections in the US. I will work with text and digital print for the first time in collaboration with younger artists, who will help me design and print the works for the installation.


The Funding Story 

I already have raised 85% of my total project costs of £8538. Thank you to Arts Council England for a generous £5000 Grant for the Arts. I have received in-kind support from the project partners, the Women's Art Library and Thames Barrier Print Studio, where I will be creating the printed works for the installation. 

I need your help to raise the last £1000 of my budget. 

Any donation, no matter how small, is welcome. THANK YOU!

The budget will fund:

  • Payment to collaborating artists
  • Digital and silkscreen printing
  • Installation and publicity costs
  • Talks and tours of the archive and installation
  • Free mono-printing workshops for art students in two local schools
  • Essays by two arts writers
  • Research in the archive
  • Project blog
  • An A4 digital print for viewers to take away

Risks and challenges

I have been developing From Absorb to Zoom for a year. The arduous process of applying for a Grant for the Arts from Arts Council England has focused my planning and receiving the grant was a great vote of confidence.

The challenge for me is that this project requires a huge amount of work on my part, including working in new media. I am confident that with help from my skilled collaborating artists and my project partners and with your support, I will successfully complete it.
