Yinka Shonibare CBE RA and Kehinde Wiley feature in 'Entangled Pasts, 1768–now'

Royal Academy, London, UK

'Entangled Pasts, 1768–now: Art, Colonialism and Change' brings 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.

Artworks by leading contemporary artists including Sonia Boyce, Frank Bowling, John Akomfrah, Isaac Julien, Kehinde Wiley and Yinka Shonibare CBE RA will be on display alongside works by artists from the past 250 years including Joshua Reynolds, J.M.W.Turner and John Singleton Copley – creating connections across time which explore questions of power, representation and history.

Informed by ongoing research of the RA and its colonial past, this exhibition engages around 50 artists connected to the RA to explore themes of migration, exchange, artistic traditions, identity and belonging.
