A PAINFUL PAST
In a thought-provoking new exhibition, curator Alison Smith brings together various artworks from the last 500 years that propagate, critique, and reflect on Britain’s imperial past. The show confronts the controversy of the British Empire. Approximately 200 works will be compiled from around the globe, showcasing the views and artistic depictions of colonization, their evolution over time, and what this means to us today. Artist and Empire runs November 25, 2015–April 10, 2016 at the Tate Britain in London.
