The Slade Archive Project is centred on facilitating the exploration, research and development of the Slade’s rich collection of institutional records
Since 1871, UCL’s Slade School of Fine Art has educated and trained generations of world-renowned artists.
The Slade has an extensive archive which includes administrative records, professional papers, photographs, class lists, student records and artefacts dating throughout the school’s history at UCL. With materials held in UCL Library Special Collections, Archives and Records Office and UCL Art Museum, the archive collection contains rich evidence of the time artists have spent at the Slade.
Our collection of annual class photographs dates from 1931
We have a growing collection of oral history interviews with former staff and students
We are looking at ways to map the links between artists who studied or taught at the Slade and the impact they went on to have internationally after graduation
