Over the past year, Edward Woodman has been participating in the Art360 project which has made it possible for Woodman to work with curators and archivists and to scan and catalogue thousands of photographic images in his archive. The exhibition is made possible through the work of Art360 and coincides with Frieze London and DRAF's 10th anniversary this October.
DACS Foundation is dedicated to the physical and intellectual preservation of the UK’s cultural heritage, making artists’ works and archives accessible for present and future generations. The Foundation champions a new and encompassing perspective on the value of visual art and artists to society through public participation in education, events, publications and research opportunities.
The exhibition takes place in DRAF Studio, drawing on its compelling and impressive programme of performance. A unique space dedicated to live work, DRAF Studio has hosted performance residencies and commissions by artists including Stuart Brisley, Guy Sherwin, Edward Thomasson, Stina Nyberg, Haroon Mirza, Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings, Jacopo Miliani and Zoe Williams.
