g39, Cardiff

The WARP Library dialogue was an arts symposium as part of a library residency at g39, considering the importance of archives and the implications of the self-defined ‘artist resource’ in terms of access. From lost libraries in Iraq, to imagined planets undergoing colonialism, 5 artists (Sarah Younan, Rabab Ghazoul, Adeola Dewis, Radha Patel, Beau W Beakhouse) each presented their thoughts that were situated in dialogue with the space itself.

The residency was the basis for the paper ‘Dis/Establishing the Archive’, presented at the Archiving Gender symposium at Cardiff University.
