The New Art Gallery Walsall has paired†artist Bob and Roberta Smith†with†archivist Neil Lebeter†to create a dialogue between the two professions that explores common ground and reveals new ways to enrich one anotherís practice. Together they are demonstrating the creative potential of the Garman Ryan archive. The archive has been little studied to date. It and is composed largely of correspondence between Jacob Epstein and his family, buyers and galleries. It gives the context to much of the internationally important historic collection at Walsall.
