Brixton Calling! was a collaborative and participatory project and an exhibition that connected contemporary Brixton to its past - through the history of 1980s Brixton Art Gallery & Artists Collective and their archives.
It was a collaboration between 198 Contemporary Art and Learning (director: Lucy Davies and curator: Barby Asante) and BACA (5 individual members of the Brixton Artists Collective: Teri Bullen, Guy Burch, Françoise Dupré, Rita Keegan, Stefan Szczelkun).
Françoise Dupré was BACA project manager and co-curator. Brixton Calling! received funding from Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery Fund. Project partners included: Tate Archive, Tate Britain; Women’s Art Library, Goldsmiths, University of London; Women’s Library, London Metropolitan University; Lambeth Archives, Tate Collective, (formerly known as Tate Forum); The Bodleian Library of Commonwealth and African Studies, Oxford; Burntwood School, Wandsworth.
