Title: Time for the empire to strike back
subtitle: Trophies of Empire / Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol

Article contains a reproduction of a close up of a work by Donald Rodney that is uncredited but has the subtitle underneath that reads: “Disturbing but worth investigation”. From the article: “Rodney’s work has caused controversy, but the element of the exhibition that has raised most hackles has been the sale of “anti-colonial products, devised by South Atlantic Souvenirs and Trouble. Well worth investigating for those who like their art to do more than comment on itself.”
