Archive Fever is a collaborative project with Modern Painters, New Decorators, a not-for-profit artist-led organisation in Loughborough. Our collections are popular with artists as a source of inspiration for their work. This project has opened up our collections to emerging visual artists and will support an exhibition at Modern Painters, New Decorators Gallery in Loughborough.
Archive Fever will result in four exhibitions of newly created contemporary visual art by emerging artists, accompanied by a programme of creative workshops with local young people.
The four artists have visited the Leicestershire museum collections to explore and respond to objects that interest them and which will inform their work. Some of these objects may then be incorporated into their exhibitions.
The four exhibitions took place at Modern Painters, New Decorators in Loughborough during a 10 month period from January to November 2022.
