November 11, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

This is session two in the Black British Artists and Political Activism Public Lecture Course series. In this session, Ego Sowinski in conversation with Elizabeth Robles will look at the engagement of artists, and especially the sculptor Ronald Moody, with anti-colonial politics during what Stuart Hall has called the ‘first wave’ of Black British arts activities.
The series will run every Thursday from 4 November to 9 December from 18.30 to 20.00. This series will be broadcast live as a Zoom webinar. It will be recorded and published at a later date. Registration through Eventbrite is required.
No prior art historical knowledge is necessary.
