What can art, from the time of British colonialism, tell us about history and culture then and now? How has Imperial expansion shaped our perceptions of power, greatness and our understanding of nationhood? Join us for a discussion of a selection of famous British art works. We will unravel how they have influenced our perceptions of culture, beauty and heritage and still do in society today. We will also challenge that notion, in a study of some of contemporary art’s responses, that bring the Great British narrative into question.
