AA Archives at the Projects Review, 2015.
Come and visit the AA Archives section at this year’s AA Projects Review, showing in Bedford Square until 18th July. On display we have a selection of some of the drawings and objects donated to the Archives over the last 12 months, including work by Alison Smithson, Kenneth Frampton, Dolan Conway and Brian Mitchenere. Also exhibited is material from the ‘AA Scrapbooks’ – a compilation of AA graphic art, flyers, leaflets and other ephemera dating back to the 1850s which were gathered together for the AA’s centenary in 1947. Current cataloguing projects are also represented, with examples from the AA’s poster collection from the 1970s and 80s showing alongside a set of recently unearthed drawings by John Hejduk made for his 1986 ‘Victims’ exhibition and publication.
The AA Archives section is located just beyond the main Reception, at ground floor level, No. 36 Bedford Square.
