Speaker information

Dr Caroline Bressey, Lecturer, UCL Geography

What role did individual Black and Asian actors play in the changing artistic, social, cultural and political scenes that emerged in inter-War London? Dr Bressey’s current research project examines the archives of art collections as well as personal papers, autobiographies and memoirs to recover the lives of Black and Asian men and women who worked as artists and artists models in London between 1919 and 1939.
