Bounty

A Case of Preposterous Optimism


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

An exhibition centred around the voyage of the Bounty from London to Tahiti in 1787 to collect breadfruit plants to grow as food for the African slaves in the West Indies.

This exhibit was originally initiated and shown in the APT Gallery in October 2007 to coincide with the 200th Anniversary of the Abolition of Slavery.

William Bligh, captain of the Bounty, lived in Lambeth Road and is buried in the churchyard of St Mary-at-Lambeth.
