The Stuart Hall Library is the intellectual and social hub of Iniva, providing a context for Iniva’s archive and the opportunity to study the institution’s legacy preserving and promoting the work of artists of African and Asian descent born or based in the UK.
The library offers a specialist collection of over 10,000 volumes on the history of contemporary visual art and culture within an international and transnational context, as well as providing critical material on issues of cultural identity. It also runs talks, workshops and events including the Research Network Programme (currently digital)
Books, Journals, zines and audio-visual collections can be searched by author, keyword, title, curator, artist or individual contributor. Find out more about Iniva’s archives collection.
