From the Introduction: “Inaugurated this summer by Nina Edge’s residency and exhibition with Juginder Lamba at Wilberforce House, and Keith Piper’s video installation Trade Winds at Merseyside Maritime Museum, Trophies of Empire is a series of commissioned artworks taking place this year in maritime cities of Bristol, Hull and Liverpool.” From Trophies of Empire in Hull: “In collaboration with Hull Festival “92 and the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull Time Based Arts present the work of Nina Edge, Edwina Fitzpatrick, Sunil Gupta and South Atlantic Souvenirs & Trouble and a performance by Verbal Images. As announced in their advert printed in this brochure the merchandising produced by South Atlantic Souvenirs & Trouble relates partly to three commodities - sugar, tobacco and tea - and their concern about the inequallity of global community trading, and partly to the imperial mentality and the legacy of racism. Verbal Images is a collaboration of different artforms that “looks at the effect that the British Empire has had on the people of Africa and Asia through slavery colonialism and neo-colonialism.”

Panels 2, 3 and 4 contain information/images about Nina Edge, Edwina Fitzpatrick and Sunil Gupta
The back panel contains an advertisement for the work produced by South Atlantic Souvenirs in association with Trouble Magazine.

A5 4 panel fold out monochrome printed text and image/exhibition guide/produced by Arnolfini gallery for an exhibition

Title: Trophies of Empire
Arnolfini, 21 November 1992 - 10 January 1993
Featuring: Carole Drake, Edwina Fitzpatrick, Sunil Gupta, Bandele Iyapo, Shaheen Merali, Keith Piper, Donald Rodney, Veena Stephenson, South Atlantic Souvenirs & Trouble
Cover image: Keith Piper - detail from Trade Winds

Inside 4 panels and outside back panel contains a text that accompanies the exhibition, from the introduction: “A 19th century Bristolian commentator remarked that “there is not a brick in the city which is not cemented with the blood of a slave.” 1992, the year of the Columbus Quincentenary and the advent of a Single European market, provides an appropriate context for this project which explores various legacies of imperialism in relation to both the specific histories of the three ports and the wider issues of colonial expansion such as the Atlantic Slave Trade, continuing Third World exploitation and the diaspora of Black communities. The commissioned artists have responded innovatively through a range of art forms - from Keith Piper’s video installation Trade Winds to the visual theatre of Bandele Iyapo, and from South Atlantic Souvenir’s range of edible “post-colonial“ Trophies products to Sunil Gupta’s digitised photography.”

Live Events: Bandele Iyapo - Footsteps of the Hummingbird
5 - 6 December 8pm - with choreographer Barry Anderson, film maker Carol Stevens and theatre direction by Geoff Cresswell of ACT (African Caribbean Theatre)

A4 single sheet photocopy/Reproduced from: Venue Magazine/18 December 1992/no page reference

Title: Trophies of Empire: Arnolfini
author: Mike Gartside

Article contains a reproduction of a photograph by Sunil Gupta (uncredited). From the article: “ Yes, it is vitally important that we understand the vile trade on which Bristol prospered from 17th - 19th Centuries and that we are aware of how Black and Asian people are culturally pigeonholed in a society that considers itself “enlightened“. However the artists in Trophies of Empire seem to dwell on these issues without attempting to suggest a way forward.”
