Catalogue: Colonial Afterlives

posted in: Publications | 0

Colonial Afterlives incorporates diverse views that range from melancholic eulogies to passionate and, at times, scathing commentaries on the complex legacies of British occupation. While the artists are all finely attuned to the histories and politics of their own region, the exhibition reveals profound and sometimes surprising connections. Ultimately, it raises larger questions around the nature of post-colonial identity in an increasingly globalised world. Curator: Dr Sarah Thomas
