A handsome exhibition catalogue published to accompany Entangled Pasts, 1768-now at the Royal Academy and featuring the work of artists connected with the Academy in an exploration of migration, exchange, artistic traditions, identity and belonging.

Contemporary and historic works are brought together 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.

The life-size painted cut-out figures of Lubaina Himid’s installation Naming the Money; Hew Locke’s Armada, a flotilla of ‘votive boats’ recalling different periods and places; powerful paintings, photographs, films, sculptures, drawings and prints by Sonia Boyce, Frank Bowling, John Akomfrah, Isaac Julien, El Anatsui, Kerry James Marshall, Kara Walker, Shahzia Sikander, Mohini Chandra and Betye Saar; and historical works by artists such as Joshua Reynolds, J.M. W. Turner and John Singleton Copley create connections across time that examine questions of power, representation and history.
