Archive making with the Association of Visual Arts.


The AVA builds digital access to its archive. From the AVA's origins within the African Fine Arts Society, to the South African Association of Arts, the archive traces the development of the organisation. Through this process of digitisation, the AVA's institutional life becomes a resource to the sector.

A4 offers support to this initiative by facilitating the development of a technical strategy, the provision of a venue, and hardware. This collaboration offers A4 an opportunity to reflect on its own archival processes.
