This research project will undertake new primary and secondary research into the contributions made by South Asian diaspora artists to British art history over the past 30 years. Regarding these contributions as internal and integral to, but hitherto marginalised from, official narratives of British art, this project seeks to expand the parameters of contemporary British art history. During the 1980s some Asian artists, notably Rasheed Araeen, forged productive allegiances with artists from Britain’s African and Caribbean communities. While affiliations were fluid, the self-identification of these artists as ‘Black’ positioned them and their work within a specific anti-racist discourse set against the backdrop of discriminatory police practices and civic unrest. While this period from the late 1970s to the early 1990s is a growing area of art historical research, much of the recent historicisation of the so-called ‘Black Arts Movement’ has overlooked the activities of artists with Asian heritages. This project seeks to redress this imbalance. This research is funded by The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (http://www.paul-mellon-centre.ac.uk)
