Event Details

Bard Graduate Center’s exhibition on the life of artist, designer, journalist, and colonial administrator John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911) opens up questions about visual representations of the colonial encounter in India and its aftermath. Lockwood Kipling, a significant figure in his own time, is better remembered today as Rudyard Kipling’s father. He lent his considerable talents to poetry, journalism, book illustrations, editing, museum design, furniture-making, and the plastic arts more generally. In Screen India, a film series that accompanies the exhibition, we turn to cinema through the works of artists who came of age in the shadow of empire, war, and, decolonization to explore issues of identity, interracial intimacy, and friendship across the colonial divide. Set in the context of a post-imperial world caught up in its own predicament about cross-cultural relations, and coming seventy years after the end of British colonial rule in the India, Screen India presents a series of films by renowned directors from India, France, Italy, Britain, and the United States. Scholars from around the country will introduce each film followed by a screening.
