Memorials, Memorialisation, Visual Arts and the Legacy of the Transatlantic
Slave Trade

In the wake of the 2007 Bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade in the
British Empire there has been increased discussion of and interest in the
visual representation of slavery throughout the Circum-Atlantic and the ways in
which the slave trade has been memorialised both in public, municipal and
gallery spaces. In particular in the run up to and subsequent to the
commemoration exhibitions and memorials have been staged and erected both in
Britain and more widely in Europe. Rice has been involved in debates and
activities around these art works, exhibitions and memorial sculptures through
the Slave Trade Arts Memorial Project and Abolished? in Lancaster, at the
Whitworth in Manchester as well as through the Centre for the Study of
International Slavery in Liverpool etc. etc. including working with Lubaina
Himid whose writings and continuing art projects on the subject will provide
case studies for the project. The student project would interview artists,
academics and curators involved in these activities and others further afield,
read theoretical and art historical background on race, slavery and memory and
investigate the multifarious ways that slavery and race have been interpreted
and represented in these myriad interventions. They would chart the different
responses to slavery, contextualise them in terms of black artistic practice
and the wider  history of memorialisation using comparison to other so-called
“limit events” such as the Holocaust. They would have access to the contacts
built up by Rice and other team members such as Himid through their
relationships with curators, community groups and membership of important
research centres which would enable access to archives that are beginning to be
built up around this topic and indeed to help build archives around Rice and
Himid’s projects. The final project will be limited to contemporary responses
to slavery and its memorialisation, using recent memorials such as those in
Lancaster and Docklands in London as markers of new attempts to come to terms
with the history of Transatlantic slavery.
