How do artists of African and Asian descent in Britain feature in the story of twentieth-century art?

This one-day symposium will unearth the stories behind exhibitions that have put the practices of African and Asian descent artists on Britain’s cultural map. Lucy Steeds (Afterall Journal), artists Sonia Boyce and Keith Piper, and international curator Paul Goodwin are amongst the speakers discussing ground-breaking exhibitions such as The Other Story, The Image Employed, and Trophies of Empire, bringing to light how they came about, what their impact was and how the artworks in them have peppered and punctuated major developments in twentieth-century art.
