This ongoing project positions the archive as a space of becoming for women and non binary people of colour
Becoming an Archive at the Buchi Emecheta Space is the second iteration of an ongoing project that through an open call seeks to collect works and ephemera from women and non binary artists of colour working in Britain since 1992-present. We invited artist Rebecca Bellantoni to produce a responsive commission that addresses and gives presence to the women of colour within in its holds as well as those who have been left out and overlooked. Through working together with Rebecca, our thinking around the archive began to shift. What, we began to ask, is the very nature of an archive housed in an institution doing for us? How does it engage and contribute to the contemporary moment of identity politics and collectivity?
