This statement attempts to present a critical examination of my work and achievements as a curator and artist over a period of almost thirty years from 1987, when I joined the Africa section of what was then the Ethnography Department of the British Museum (BM), to the present day. In so doing I hope to convey my evolving understanding of my role as a curator - and the theoretical contexts that underpin the choices I was faced with during this period, played out against the backdrop of the momentous socio-political events taking place in the world.
