Professor Clare Harris, Curator for Asian Collections

Talk, tour and book launch.

Professor Harris will introduce ‘Performing Tibetan Identities’, the photographic exhibition currently on display in the museum.  The show results from a trans-continental collaboration between Clare and the young Tibetan photographer, Nyema Droma, who lives in Llasa in China.  Nyema was the 2018 Origins and Future visiting artist at the Pitt Rivers Museum.  During that time she created a striking series of portraits of young fellow Tibetans, whether living in China or Europe.  Her work raises many questions about dress, material culture and identity formation.
