The Archives Network (AAN) is an emerging professional network that connects freelance and institution-based archivists, curators and arts professionals through a shared interest in artists’ archives and legacies. Started by the UK-based ART360 Foundation in 2020, the AAN is a collaboration between ART360 and Hauser & Wirth Institute and seeks to connect memory workers internationally.
Through workshops, live events and digital exchange, the AAN provides a platform for dialogue on the preservation of, and access to, the archives of visual artists. We also explore best practice around the acquisition, archiving and display of artists’ work, inviting artists and estates to actively participate and lead on these conversations.
Membership is free and open to all. To become a member please complete the form at the bottom of the page. We will automatically sign you up to the AAN mailing list where you will receive updates on our workshops and events.
