Visit the Artist & Empire Expo at the Tate!

Amid the Independent’s reporting of the results of a poll that claims British people are proud of colonialism and the Empire, the Tate in London is hosting an exhibit that explores and confronts British imperialism through imagery with Artist and Empire: Facing Britain’s Imperial Past.

The exhibition opened in November last year and will run until the 10th April 2016, displaying a wide variety of artefacts from the colonial era in order to analyse notions of “ownership, authorship and how the value and meanings of these diverse objects have changed through history”.

More information about the exhibit, including ticket details and a trailer can all be found on the Tate’s website.
