Series nameExhibitions & Catalogues

Held at the Brunei Gallery in the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, ‘Routes: Though Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbour’s Idols’, was an exhibition of sculptures, paintings and drawings. The ‘Routes’ exhibition comprised paintings of Godfried Donker from Ghana, charcoal drawings from Edinburgh born artist Hew Locke, paintings by Soweto’s Johannes Phokela, pencil drawings by Frances Richardson who was born in Leeds and trained in Nigeria, as well as Juginder Lamba’s Indian and East African influenced sculpture work. The exhibition ran from 22 January – 26 March 1999. According to the catalogue, the ‘Routes’ exhibition was held to “reveal some of the complexities, contradictions, and opportunities that emerge from a cross cultural society, and unsettles many assumptions about ‘black art'”. The digitised portion of this catalogue includes an introduction by the curator Rose Issa, an extract of the ‘Routes’ essay pertaining to Juginder Lamba by Everlyn Nicodemus, and a list of Juginder Lamba’s illustrations included in the catalogue.
