The Random Archive is a collaborative exhibition project taking place over 2 sites, Bury Art Museum, and MMU Special Collections Gallery.
Curated by Susan Lord and Dr. Hannah Allan, the Random Archive exhibition features the work of national and international Language Artists which is part of Bury
Art Museum’s unique Text Art Archive. Random Archive attempts to push boundaries by questioning how an archive can be viewed, accessed and explored. This is a unique opportunity for visitors to get up close in a gallery setting to a collection which is usually kept in store, the public will be encouraged to interact with it and explore it afresh.
