Contextualising theory through the interactions and associations of art and the archive. Here at Ford Beaumont we are suspended in a state of flux.

Alongside our Virtual Gallery, we will be exhibiting a series of stills of the insides of gallery we've never had the chance to go to, ironically debilitated by our Art History Degree and the debts that come with it. Thanks to the invention of Google Maps, poor students can experience to the best of their abilities the grandiose architecture that houses some of the worlds best art, all from the comfort of their homes.
Here, have a look at the Louvre this morning with your coffee.

Archiving is typically seen as something to document the past, but we're trying to archive the contemporary. Over at FutureEverything's "City Fictions" this weekend, they were archiving the future, posing some interesting collaborative ideas. Did you see it? If so let us know what you thought!
