The display draws from the extraordinary collection of Leslie Braine–Ikomi. It features prints dating from 1742–1830, inviting fresh reflection on how people from the African Diaspora were depicted during this period and the impact of this imagery today.
Britain’s museums and galleries now display many historic depictions of people from the African Diaspora – but the nature and quality of these images is widely diverse. What motivated these different representations and how should museums treat them today?
The Museum invited the speakers to respond to the display, Take Another Look, and to the questions it raises. They will share their own thoughts on the issues of depiction, as a prompt for discussion.
The speakers include: SI Martin, Leslie Braine–Ikomi, Dr Hakim Adi, Patrick Vernon OBE, Dr Temi Odumosu and Dr Tom Wareham, curator of the London, Sugar and Slavery gallery.
Date: Saturday 20th April 2013
