Recently there has been a rethinking of the importance of migrant voices within British Art History. First generation British South Asian artists like Anwar Jalal Shemza and Rasheed Araeen have been included in museum exhibitions globally and art history books are being rewritten and rethought. These changes make it possible for new conversations to take place – a new dialogue for the 21st Century around the legacy of South Asian migration and its impact on contemporary arts practitioners working in the UK today. Using the National Gallery’s collection as a starting point for discussion, Shifting Ground invites a number of key media artists to present their work exploring identity, cultural heritage and migration.
