Beyond Idenitity: New Directions in Visual Culture Debate Series

Artists, designers, historians and critics will discuss issues of identity.

This debate takes the form of eleven conversations taking place on Sunday afternoons from October 2004 to April 2005,15.00 - 16.30. They bring together a group of artists from a wide variety of backgrounds, from African and Caribbean to Asian and Jewish. They will be in conversation with cultural historians, critics and fellow artists. No longer involved primarily with issues of identity, these artists and others like them now represent one of the most dynamic manifestations of contemporary British visual culture.

Using processes ranging from painting and printmaking to photography, sculpture, video and film, they have engaged with the art histories presented through the collections of our national museums. Implicitly their work questions a particular history of collecting, commemoration and cultural visibility.

The series has been organised by Rosie Miles, Curator, Word & Image, V&A, with advice and assistance from Pauline de Souza, University of East London.
