Archivo is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
This project would not be possible without the collaboration of wonderful and talented artists and other professionals in the field of visual arts from around the world. We therefore cannot celebrate this milestone without acknowledging all past and present contributors and of course, all our readers, who give us a reason to continue this work.
We will celebrate this exciting moment with new and past collaborators of Archivo, by opening up our own archive and critically rearticulating its content in the light of the present. Every month we will share new content that departs from our archival 'digging' and show the development of artistic practice of those who have embarked on this journey with us over the last decade. Opening up our archives presents the opportunity to not only commemorate the work produced at Archivo, but is also a way of readdressing our mission to provide critical reflection on images. Stay tuned and we hope you enjoy celebrating this milestone with us.
