A Moral Question, A Moral Duty: SACU ChinaChat with Iris Yau
June 25, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
SACU ChinaChat meeting for members: “A Moral Question, A Moral Duty” – Behind the scenes with SACU member Iris Yau, Curator of the exhibition “Opium, Silk and the Missionaries in China” currently open at the Brunei Gallery, SOAS.
The Exhibition: “Opium, Silk and the Missionaries in China” retells one of the largely forgotten histories of the relationship between Britain and China in the 19th Century. It draws on several collections, using artefacts to explore the history of the Opium Wars. Botanical arts and tools, historical artefacts about silk, missionary work and intercultural shared experiences in China recorded by British Missionaries throughout this period are all used in this fascinating exhibition:
SACU member Iris Yau, Fellow Royal Society of Arts (RSA), Higher Education Academy UK (Advance HE), and Curator will give an informal online talk on this exhibition to SACU members.
This is a Zoom meeting for members – a reminder with link will be sent to members two days before the talk.
