Artists Liliane Lijn and Deanna Petherbridge and exhibition organiser Catherine Lampert discuss Hayward Annual 78 (1978), the second in an annual series of contemporary exhibitions selected by a small group of artists or critics. Hayward Annual 78 was known as the ‘women’s annual’ thanks to its all-female selection committee consisting of artists Rita Donagh, Tessa Jaray, Liliane Lijn, Kim Lim and Gillian Wise.
This film is part of Conversations in the Archive, a series of five short films exploring seminal exhibitions from Hayward Gallery’s history. In each film, artists and curators involved in the exhibition are captured in conversation, with archival material acting as a prompt for reflection and recollection.
Commissioned by Hayward Gallery for its 50th anniversary with Art Fund support.
Working in partnership with Google Arts & Culture, Hayward Gallery has digitised archival material from 50 landmark exhibitions that have taken place at the gallery over the past 50 years.
