    "It will seem like a journey through time"

    Next spring, we bring together over 100 major contemporary and historic works as part of a conversation about art and its role in shaping narratives of empire, enslavement, resistance, abolition and colonialism – and how it may help set a course for the future.

    Lubaina Himid RA, one of the contemporary artists featured in the exhibition, discusses how visiting Entangled Pasts, 1768–now will feel.
