Seeing China: Community Reflections

This exhibition explores the Society’s collection of maps and photographs of China from 1850 onwards through the personal reminiscences and collective reflections of London based Chinese community groups. The legacies of several centuries of contact between Britain and China provide a backdrop for contemporary issues such as global migration and identity, alongside an examination of complex shared, and often unequal, histories of these two countries.

This exhibition is part of the Crossing Continents: Connecting Communities (PDF) project funded by the HLF, Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation and John Lyons Charity. The exhibition was first shown at the RGS-IBG in 2008.
