We are excited to introduce you to Market Gallery’s collaboration with My Bookcase, I think you are using the word archive inaccurately.

This summer, the Market Gallery committee has decided to devote time to opening and examining the contents of its archive. My Bookcase has been invited to provide the platform for multiple perspectives concerning archival practices to convene.

During July and August this year, as part of the first phase of the project, My Bookcase founder, Cristina Garriga, is inviting individuals and organisations within Glasgow and Scotland to join Market Gallery for a series of informal conversations around archival practices.

Contributors are encouraged to bring along with them a publication/object/folder/print from their archive and/ or archival practices, which could be lent to us for the duration of the summer as a way of opening up conversation and documenting this collaborative process.

The summer programme will culminate in a one-day forum in Autumn 2015 (date t.b.c.) at Market Gallery where speakers from the UK and Europe will be invited to open up the conversation to new influences and possibilities.
We look forward to sharing this conversation with you.

If you are interested in the project and would like to learn more about it please email us at afterword@mybookcase.org.
