New Diasporic Voices in Migrations: Journeys into British Art

Goodwin, Paul (2012) New Diasporic Voices in Migrations: Journeys into British Art. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Goodwin, Paul
Description:

Goodwin curated New Diasporic Voices, a section of ‘Migrations: Journeys into British Art’, an exhibition at Tate Britain that dealt with the theme of migration from 1500 to the present day. ‘New Diasporic Voices’ addressed the impact on British art of artists from migrant backgrounds who were born in the UK and went to art schools at a time of widespread political and economic upheaval during the 1980s.

‘Migrations: Journeys into British Art’ was a new type of Tate display: a trans-historical thematic project that would engage the entire Tate collection and interrogate it through the lens of a major, overarching concept or issue. It was to be the first of a new programme of trans-historical collection based exhibitions that would address the museum's need to focus more on working with its collection for reasons of saving costs, but also as a way of expanding and deepening knowledge of the collection through research based conceptual questioning.
