          Abstract

          The newly-established Computer Arts Archive provides a home for The CAS50 Collection and related materials from the Computer Arts Society, plus those of individual artists. The archive was incorporated as a Community Interest Company in January 2020 and now has an office and storage facility in Leicester. This paper documents the recent additions to the archive and the exhibitions undertaken in 2019 at the Royal College of Arts in London, the LCB LightBox Gallery in Leicester and at the V&A in London. It also presents a strategy for developing the archive further that involves expanding the types of work collected and the amount of contextualising materials.

              THE FORETIETH ANNIVERSARY OF EVENT ONE AT THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART

              Event One was the first major public activity of the Computer Arts Society (CAS) founded in 1969 “to promote the creative use of computers in the arts”. Now celebrating its fortieth year, this paper will examine the concepts behind the aims and objectives of CAS through this exhibition staged in March 1969 at the Royal College of Art. Participants from the realms of fine art and computer programming, among others offered a range of visitor experiences from graphics to live performance. Event One heralded the collaborative, cross-disciplinary nature of working which came to signify the early period of media arts.
