Artist and Empire
25 November 2015 – 10 April 2016
Tate Britain: Exhibition

In 21st century Britain, ‘empire’ is highly provocative. Its histories of war, conquest and slavery are difficult and painful to address but its legacy is everywhere and affects us all. The show raises questions about ownership, authorship and how the value and meanings of these diverse objects have changed through history, it also asks what they still mean to us today.

Concession £12.70 with donation £14.00
