Tate Britain, Clore Auditorium
Saturday 21 February 2015, 11.00 – 18.00
£20, £14 concessions
From characters from ancient mythology to the birth of modernism, this symposium takes an interdisciplinary approach, exploring relationships between artists and models, multi-racial interwar communities, historical subjects, sexuality, gender and the work of previously neglected artists.
The aim is to take a broad historical sweep, using the Tate collection as a starting point for a discussion on depictions of people of African and Asian decent in British art, tracing a journey from subject to subjectivity. Speakers include Dr Caroline Bressey, Dr David Dibosa, Kimathi Donkor, Prof.Partha Mitter Dr Miranda Kaufmann, Jan Marsh, SI Martin, Dr Roshan McClenahan, Dr Temi Odumosu, Dr Gemma Romain and Dr Florian Stadtler.
