Part of the Institute of Theology and the Liberal Arts Research Seminars Series 2020/21.

Nick Ellsworth will present The Sixties and Museums: Using Commonwealth Art to Promote a New British Identity.

This talk will look at the role of Commonwealth art in promoting a new British identity post-decolonisation and the loss of empire. By replacing imperial themes and motifs with that of a cosmopolitan, shared culture with Commonwealth nations, museums and galleries made numerous attempts to harness the power of culture to present a new national identity. The time period for this talk will be 1960-1965, but there will be references to events before and after these dates.
