Curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah, Ghosts of Empire II seeks to provoke conversation and questioning around British imperialism

“I want everyone who visits the exhibition to have a confrontational dialogue around imperialism. To think about it, question it and observe the byproducts of the empire,” shares the Ghanaian-American curator and critic Larry Ossei-Mensah. It is this determination to articulate the history of British colonialism – one that is often ignored by the curriculum in the west – that forms the basis of his exhibition Ghosts of Empire II.
