The Courtauld Institute of Art, London, UK

Join us for Seeing Double: Mughal Reflections in South Asian Art, on 10 April 2021, in collaboration with the South Asia Institute of Chicago.


This intensive Saturday Study Event will provide both historical and current perspectives on South Asia’s imperial past. ‘Reflecting’ on the Mughals is pivotal to the way India and Pakistan envision their nations – and grapple with their (post)colonial history. Our discussions will revolve around the South Asia Institute of Chicago’s landmark exhibition, Old Traditions, New Narratives: South Asian Miniatures, which encompasses ‘traditional’ miniature paintings as well as contemporary re-interpretations of them. The session will create unique opportunities to experience the show virtually, meet its organisers and discuss its dominant themes. Speakers will include the South Asia Institute’s founders – collectors Afzal and Shireen Ahmad – executive director Asad Ali Jafri, artist Nusra Latif Qureshi and South Asian art historian Dr Zehra Jumabhoy.
