Approaching our Past: Tackling an Uncomfortable Truth

The subjects of repatriation, restitution and exploitation in the arts feel more urgent than ever. In this panel discussion, moderated by Renée Pfister and hosted by London Art Fair, we will examine how two museums and a city have dealt with these extremely sensitive issues, and how acknowledging our history can lead us to a more fair and inclusive future.

Join Renée and our panellists Frances Coles, Gillian Smithson and Marenka Thompson-Odlum, on Tuesday 26 January, 4 - 5 PM (GMT).
