From Madras to Bangalore

Post by eastlondonpostcard » Mon Aug 06, 2018 9:39 pm

If you are in London between July and September 23rd... check out this exhibition: https://www.soas.ac.uk/gallery/from-mad ... bangalore/

This exhibition covers a selection of picture postcards from the Indian cities of Chennai and Bengaluru between 1900 and the 1930s; then known as Madras and Bangalore. They were the two most important colonial cities in British south India. By pairing these together, this exhibition tells a tale of how these two cities, although separated by 215 miles, were linked through a set of common representational and material practices. FROM MADRAS TO BANGALORE explores how postcard practices imagined, figured and performed a colonial encounter by depicting cities’ monuments, street, people and places.
