This display highlights some of the powerful artworks recently acquired as part of a project to help develop our collections.

About

In October 2014 the International Slavery Museum received a generous grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Collecting Cultures programme. The Transatlantic and Contemporary Slavery Collecting Project ran for four years and resulted in more than 40 new objects and documents being added to our collections, including many new artistic works.

Why art?

Artistic responses to the history of transatlantic slavery, its legacies and contemporary forms of slavery by artists such as Kimathi Donkor and Alison Welsh, provide important new voices and new perspectives. We hope that through the art we collect and the artists we work with, the International Slavery Museum can create a richer and more challenging way in which visitors and students can engage with and learn about this history and its legacies
