The Women's Audio Archive is a project by Marysia Lewandowska. Between 1984 and 1990, Lewandowska interviewed dozens of women artists and recorded their conversations. Lewandowska was born in Poland and had recently immigrated to London before launching this project. As the introduction to the Women's Audio Archive notes, these recordings "began as a way to address the possibilities, as an artist and in everyday life, within a new, unfamiliar environment through observation in gathering knowledge and participation in developing relationships." On this website, visitors can explore recordings from this project, which have been digitized (they were originally recorded on magnetic tape). These recordings, which included private conversations as well as public lectures and discussions, can be browsed via the inventory section. Alternatively, visitors may also choose to explore this collection by keyword tags. Listeners can hear conversations with artists Judy Chicago, Nancy Spero, Jenny Holzer, and John Cage, to name just a few. Each recording is accompanied by a short description, along with information about where and when the original recording took place.
