African and Asian Visual Artists' Archive


The African and Asian Visual Artists' Archive was established in 1989 in Bristol as a national arts organisation. The archive is currently housed at the University of East London and curated by the photographer David Bailey and the artist Sonia Bryce. It comprises over 1,946 images of contemporary art and exhibitions including work by over 200 artists of African and Asian descent working in the UK since 1945, ranging from recent graduates to early modernist pioneers.
The collection can be viewed online via Arts and Humanities Data Service.
