CILIP's Library & Information History Group is delighted to announce its first visit of 2018, to Stuart Hall Library.
The Stuart Hall Library is the library of Institute of International Visual Arts (InIVA). It holds Iniva’s collections and research, and supports Iniva’s work by documenting and facilitating its research into the contemporary visual arts within an international and transnational context, as well as providing critical material on issues of cultural identity and offering a specialist collection that is open to the public.
The library’s collections are internationally significant in the field of contemporary visual art. They have an emphasis on art and artists from Africa, Asia and Latin America, and UK artists of African, Asian and Latin American heritage, and from other cultural backgrounds. The collections include rare items important to the UK black arts movement, a growing collection of contemporary artist and activist zines, and a substantial AV collection of artists’ films and interviews.
