 The Shadow Archive  

The Shadow Archive is a live and ongoing archive that collects and catalogues self-organised art spaces. It operates on the premise that such spaces can be understood as co-authored artworks, created collaboratively as useful sites for discussion, production, support, exhibition and interaction. The Shadow Archive offers a platform for those that run self-organised art spaces to describe themselves and seeks to archive the subjectivity of each space.

The Shadow Archive is an ongoing curatorial project by independent curator, Nathalie Boobis, in collaboration with archivist, Anthony Day.
