<p>Join us at a free online talk by artists Elaine Mitchener and Mohini Chandra as part of the British Art Show 9 (BAS9), chaired by Mallory Haas - Made in Plymouth’s Community Reporter and director and chief maritime archaeologist of The SHIPS Project CIC on the 5 December, from 5:45 pm to 7:00 pm (GMT).</p> <p>The discussion will focus on the artists' recent works and how their vision relates to the themes represented in the British Art Show 9 while it is displayed in Plymouth. The narratives relating to BAS9 in Plymouth look at reparative history and the migration of bodies, peoples, plants, objects, ideas and forms. In previous works by both artists, they have looked at their own histories to better understand and disseminate difficult topics like empire and colonialism, one of the themes within BAS9.</p> <p><strong>This public event is organised by the 'Empire and Place' Research Network at Arts University Plymouth <strong>and supported by Plymouth Culture. </strong></strong></p> <p><a href="https://BAS9OnlineTalks.eventbrite.com" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Book your free ticket at </a><a href="https://BAS9OnlineTalks.eventbrite.com" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">BAS9OnlineTalks.eventbrite.com</a></p>
