Join Kettle’s Yard Curatorial Assistant Alina Khakoo for a talk about Jim Ede’s travels in India between 1917–19, and to quote the collector himself, the ‘reverberations’ of this journey that sounded throughout his life. Taking a closer look at material from the Jim Ede and India display, and presenting further findings from other national collections and archives, this discussion explores the nuances of the collector’s lifelong engagement with South Asian politics, culture and religion.

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 and presenting 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. After graduating from Cambridge with a BA in Modern and Medieval Languages, she completed an MA History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, worked as a Researcher for Sotheby’s London and spent 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.
