‘INDIA East/West’ at the VCUQatar Gallery

VCUQatar’s Gallery presents ‘INDIA East / West' - The Age of Discovery in late Georgian India as seen through the collections of the Royal Asiatic Society, London.

The exhibition, curated by Jochen Sokoly and Alison Ohta, opens on 15 March, and is scheduled to run at the VCUQatar Gallery until 17 April, 2010.

India: East|West looks at a critical period in the history of colonial India at the end of the 18th/beginning of the 19th centuries when ideas of the enlightenment brought about a quest to discover the geography, natural habitat, history, cultures and architecture of the Indian subcontinent through a discourse between the scholarly elites of both British colonialists and their Indian subjects.
