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.”
