About Bristol Archives: Empire through the Lens

This exhibition offers a multi-faceted look at the former British Empire and its impacts on people today, through a unique selection of still and moving images selected by members of the community, alongside new contemporary commissions by Birmingham-based artists. Prompting debates about decolonisation of culture and the UK’s relationships with the rest of the world, this is a timely subject matter for audiences.

Exhibition developed by Bristol Museums. Funded by Arts Council England and Bristol City Council, and the National Cataloguing Grants Programme for Archives. Special thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery. Presented as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival.
