Abstract

The Demarco Digital Archive is an on-line, non-profit making, publicly-funded educational research resource of approximately 10,000 records from the archives of Richard Demarco. The records are predominantly photographs, plus documents, publications and other printed material. The original archival material was created or gathered by Richard Demarco. All the digital records are drawn from the Demarco archives held by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (SNGMA) and the Demarco European Art Foundation (DEAF). SNGMA holds most of Demarco’s archive covering the period from 1963 to 1995. It comprises documents, publications, scrapbooks, albums and press cuttings, plus some artworks, photographs and films. DEAF retained the large majority of Demarco’s photographs and a substantial collection of artworks, and since 1995 has amassed more documents, publications and other printed material. The location of archival items at SNGMA or DEAF is given in the data accompanying each digital record.

The SNGMA and DEAF archives contain material of international range and interest, relevant to visual art, theatre, literature, arts education and cultural history from the early 1960s on, and also have a personal character as a document of Richard Demarco’s life. The digital archive has sought to preserve both aspects. The selection of images represents the wide range of Demarco’s activities and seeks to give due weight to those likely to be of widest interest.

The re-design and re-launch of the website has somewhat enhanced the user experience which has allowed better access, viewability, improved searches, curated collections and allows users to login and create their own collections. The website is still providing an excellent resource for scholars, researchers and the general public, with frequent requests for images to use in publications, internationally.
