British Art and the Global: Althea McNish
This summer, I will continue my work on Althea McNish, an influential yet under-studied Trinidadian textile designer who lived and worked in Great Britain. After a year researching her and her work, I am now focusing on the broader contexts that surround her designs, including the Caribbean Artists Movement and the British Black Arts Movement. The article on McNish will appear in a special edition of the journal Art History next year that is concerned with questions of global influences on and interactions with British art. I will continue to create bibliographies, edit drafts, and source images for the upcoming publication.
