We are delighted to invite you to a two-day conference Archives and Museums—Old Routes/New Journeys. The conference will bring together artists, curators, historians, writers, archivists, and museum professionals to discuss the creative and critical ways in which collections in museums and materials in archives can be made more accessible, more public. The sessions are also designed with the intention to re-imagine and re-view archives and museums as spaces of contact and multiple narratives between people, scholarly material, artworks, and ideas. Structured around presentations, panel discussions and talks, the two days will conclude with Lady Anandi, a performance by Anuja Ghosalkar drawn from archival research.
