A PAINFUL PAST

S/ - - CULTURE -

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.
