Event description
In association with Invisible Palace, we bring to light the lost Upper Terrace statues from the Crystal Palace in all their diversity!

About this event

Drawing on Invisible Palace’s new research into the lost Upper Terrace statues from Crystal Palace Park, this talk will highlight the ways in which Empire, Race and Nation were represented at the Crystal Palace. The Upper Terrace Statues will form a point of departure for a wider exploration of the plaster casts of people of colour located in the ‘Natural History’ Department of the Palace, exhibited peoples, and the 1911 Festival of Empire.

Our speaker, Kate Nichols, is an art historian of Britain and the British Empire between c.1815-1920 and a Fellow at Birmingham University. Her first book, Greece and Rome at the Crystal Palace: Classical Sculpture and Modern Britain, 1854-1936, was published by Oxford University Press in 2015. It was the first in-depth assessment of how classical art figured in debates over design reform, taste, beauty and morality, class and gender, and race and imperialism.
