Lunchtime Lecture: Between Two Worlds

Thursday 22 June

The curators and conservators behind the Between Two Worlds display – which presents portraits of two gentlemen scholars created 280 years apart – discuss their approaches.


Pairing Francis Williams and Vanley Burke side-by-side for the first time, the display examines how histories are narrated, and notions of Britishness and Jamaican-ness as expressed through the lives we create and the objects that are significant to us. In this behind-the-scenes talk, the team take you on virtual tour of the extraordinary archive created by Vanley Burke, and through the surface of the painting of Francis Williams.
