Tour: Jim Ede and India

Join Curatorial Assistant Alina Khakoo for a spotlight tour of South Asian stories in the Kettle’s Yard House. If Ede described the House as his ‘portrait’, then this is a chance to explore how his travels in British India and enduring connections with the South Asian subcontinent come to life in the art and non-art objects in the House. From textiles to a Tibetan yak bell, find out how the Kettle’s Yard collection manifests Ede’s sustained yet complex engagement with South Asia.

About Alina Khakoo

Alina Khakoo is a Curatorial Assistant at Kettle’s Yard and a Cambridge Trust-funded doctoral candidate in the Faculty of English at the University of Cambridge, researching modern and contemporary South Asian visual culture. She is interested in colonial and postcolonial material culture and theory, particularly British Asian or South Asian, and how these intersect with gender and sexuality. She graduated with a BA in Modern and Medieval Languages from Cambridge, before completing an MA History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, working as a Researcher for Sotheby’s London and spending a year at Harvard University as a Herchel Smith Scholar.

About Jim Ede and India

‘Jim Ede and India’ is a research space display and presents new discoveries from Kettle’s Yard and other national archives and collections, encompassing rare correspondence, photographs, art and non-art objects. In Ede’s own words, his service in the British Indian Army and travels across northern India between 1917–19 ‘reverberated’ throughout his life. This display traces these reverberations in his ties with the Indian cultural and political elite in 1930s London, his intimate friendships with TE Lawrence, William Congdon and other expatriates to India, and his lifelong curiosity for South Asian history, geography, politics, culture and religion.

Access

The House is not fully accessible and this tour includes climbing the spiral staircase in the cottage as well as crossing several other stepped levels.
