'In 21st century Britain, ‘empire’ is highly provocative. Its histories of war, conquest and slavery are difficult to address but its legacy affects us all. Artist and Empire brings together extraordinary and unexpected works to explore how artists from Britain and around the world have responded to the dramas, tragedies and experiences of the Empire.
