Abstract

Gifts of Recognition is an exhibition drawing upon the School's remarkably rich but little known artistic collection. Concentrating on modern and contemporary art, it displays a selection of gifts and donations to the School, and constitutes a further stage in the Treasures of SOAS Project, designed to display and research the SOAS collections. The exhibits include modern Japanese calligraphy, modern and contemporary Chinese paintings, including one by the famous Huang Junbi, and a remarkable "Moonlight" by the Korean Ki Chang Kim. Among a wealth of material from South East Asia, two striking paintings by Min Wae Aung will be exhibited, while South Asia will be represented by such father figures of modern Indian, Bengali and Pakistani art as Jamini Roy, Bashir Mirza and Jamil Naqsh. Paintings by the famous Iranian artist Nasser Ovissi, donated to SOAS in 2010, will also figure, while prominent and seminal artists such as the South African Billy Mandini and the Nigerian Iyoghiojie will provide examples of modern and contemporary African art. The exhibition will also include a small selection of modern European paintings associated with Asia and Africa by three remarkable women, Elizabeth Keith, Margaret Trowell and Barbara Robinson.
