Recordings from Cv/VAR Archive
Cv/Visual Arts Research The survey began in 1988 as recordings made with artists, jewellers, fashion designers and furniture restorers, based at Old Loom House Studios in Whitechapel, launching a quarterly reviewCv Journal of Art and Crafts. Cv Journal was published to 1992 and the collection of interviews, features and reviews provided the foundation of the Cv/VAR archive and subsequent publications. The archive is organised as Interviews-Artists; Curators and Collections; Crafts Directory, Social Studies and Studio Work. Titles are published as books, monographs and audiobooks.
Cv/VAR 304 A selection of recorded conversations with leading international sculptors in which they describe their personal development, the ideas and structural preoccupations that form their practice. The interviews were made between 1988 and 2011.
