The exhibitions we have created with our partners in the past have been varied. The most recent exhibition prior to the current one was:
Image & Identity: views from Ceylon/Sri Lanka and Oxfordshire in early colonial photographs
1 October – 31 December 2022
The Image & Identity exhibition was curated by Shalini Amerasinghe Ganendra, cultural scholar with expertise in the understanding of early colonial photography from Ceylon (present day Sri Lanka). The exhibition aimed to build awareness of the fluidity of visual perspectives, using colonial period photography as a springboard for contemporary discussions and explorations. We showed early images, as well as other colonial period documentation from Sri Lanka (the Pitt Rivers Museum collections) and Oxfordshire (from the Underhill Collection held by MOX). Images of contemporary works by established Sri Lankan artist, Sujeewa Kumari, extended the theme of links between image, impression and time, specifically referring to colonial photography and inviting us to consider how we see those photographed people and places today.
