Stuart Hall Library


Come by this Saturday and explore the Stuart Hall Library in a new light. With our now extended openings hours and an upcoming programme of workshops, screenings and tours, the library’s outstanding collection of 10,000 volumes will be even easier to access. Whether you’d like to spend a Saturday exploring Iniva’s visual art library on your own, researching as part of a group, or attending a workshop, do drop in and see what we have to offer. We would also love to hear what you think.

The Stuart Hall Library is home to a wide variety of exhibition catalogues, books, magazines, journals and zines which cover contemporary visual art practice and research. The collection engages with a range of intersectional and political topics, focusing on race, class and gender, and artists of African, Asian and Latin American heritage.

The collection includes rare journals important to the UK Black Arts movement, a growing collection of contemporary artist and activist zines, and many artists’ films and interviews on DVD that you can watch in the library.

If you haven’t been to the library before or would just like to learn more about it, drop in for a guided tour with one of our team members. Stephanie Moran (Library and Information Manager), Lexi Frost (Senior Library Assistant) and Simina Neagu (Programme Coordinator) will be there to welcome you.

Guided tours on 21st October, every hour on the hour from 1pm. No booking required.
If you have any access requirements please get in touch at library@iniva.org

Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) is an evolving, radical visual arts organisation dedicated to developing an artistic programme that reflects on the social and political impact of globalization.

With the Stuart Hall Library acting as a critical and creative hub for our work, we collaborate with artists, curators, researchers and cultural producers to challenge conventional notions of diversity and difference. We engage a wide audience, particularly young people, in discourse and debate on issues surrounding the politics of race, class and gender.

Our Saturday openings have been made possible with funding from Cockayne Grants for the Arts, a donor-advised fund of the London Community Foundation and match funding from the Arts Council England Catalyst Scheme.
