Following the 20-year anniversary since the exhibition Veil began touring in galleries across the UK and in Stockholm, we invite you to explore the  archive collection of Veil in this show-and-tell tour with our Cataloguing Archivist Niamh Glanville-Frayne.

In this event we will reflect on how the exhibition was received at the time and how it may be received if it were to happen now; we delve deeper into the curatorial process of the exhibition, and the archival process of cataloguing the collection, with a focus on ethics surrounding consent, representations of women’s bodies, and how to rebalance the narrative around archival subjectivities.


It is free to attend this event and everyone is welcome. If you have accessibility requirements or questions please email library@iniva.org.


Niamh Glanville-Frayne is the Cataloguing Archivist at iniva. She is responsible for cataloguing key parts of iniva’s archive to facilitate the access and engagement of significant histories in diverse contemporary art. Niamh’s work is supported by the Archives Revealed Programme.
