Sarah Victoria Turner is Assistant Director for Research at the Paul Mellon Centre. She was previously a lecturer in the History of Art Department at the University of York. She was educated at the University of Cambridge, the University of Leeds and the Courtauld Institute of Art and researches art and visual culture in Britain and the British Empire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She specializes in cultural relationships between Britain and India in this period and has published widely on the display and reception of Indian art in Britain – a topic that is the focus of the book that she is currently writing, provisionally entitled Indian Impressions: Encounters with South Asia in British Art, c.1900–1940. Developing from her MA in Sculpture Studies at the University of Leeds, she continues to work on sculpture in this period and she contributed an essay to the recent Modern British Sculpture exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. She is also a member of the advisory board for Tate’s new digital project on the sculptural practices of Henry Moore. Her other involvements in research projects include being part of the Leverhulme-funded international network Enchanted Modernities: Theosophy, Modernism and the Arts, c.1875–1960, co-principal investigator on the AHRC-funded network Internationalism and Cultural Exchange 1870–1920, and co-founder of the South Asian Arts Group. She has also worked on a number of exhibitions including Gilbert & George: Major Exhibition (Tate Modern, 2009) and William Etty: Art & Controversy (York Art Gallery, 2011), and developed an online version of this latter display in collaboration with York Museums Trust and the University of York’s Digital Library Team.
