Leading us through a maze of historical connections, Common Salt encourages us to delve into a shared past of trade, race and territory.
Join artists Sheila Ghelani and Sue Palmer for a round table show-and-tell performance of their ground-breaking new show, Common Salt. Challenging our collective amnesia around colonial history, the show will uncover the story of the East India Company. We will explore trade, borders and enclosures, both at home and in India, using nature as our guide. Travel into our shared past through a 'home museum' of objects and stories, accompanied by the music of an original Shruti box. After the performance, we will join Melissa Bennett, our Higher Education Programme Manager, on a tour around the galleries to see what we have in our collection, relating to the subject, at the Museum of London Docklands.
This event will have priority booking for Museum of London Friends from Mon 16 Dec, and will be open for public booking from Mon 23 Dec
