Mon 15 May 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 BST
Kew Gardens holds fascinating artefacts collected by the botanist Richard Spruce, who travelled in South America in the nineteenth century. In this roundtable, Luciana Martins (Birkbeck) and the Derek Jarman Lab’s Bea Moyes and Bartek Dziadosz screen and discuss the making of The Many Lives of a Shield, a short film that follows the story of this ceremonial shield.
