In recent years, as part of the Art Fund International scheme, Bristol Museum built a major collection of works that explore the notion of the modern metropolis, including artists such as Ai Weiwei, Omer Fast, Shilpa Gupta, Walid Raad, and Imran Qureshi. It is within this thematic context that Sarah Dobai’s film entered the collection in conjunction with two photographs from the same series acquired by the Friends of Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Emily and Emmanuel (2008/9) and La Scène (2009).
