Private Tour of “John Lockwood Kipling: Arts & Crafts in the Punjab and London”

September 25, 2017
6–7 pm
Bard Graduate Center
18 West 86TH Street, NYC
Free for AFA Members
$10 for Non-Members

Join us on this private tour of John Lockwood Kipling: Arts & Crafts in the Punjab and London with Susan Weber, co-curator of the exhibition and director of the Bard Graduate Center. This is the first major exhibition to examine the work of John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911)—designer, architectural sculptor, curator, educator, illustrator, and journalist—whose role in the nineteenth‐century Arts and Crafts revival in British India is little known. Featuring nearly 300 objects from metalwork and furniture to paintings and relief sculpture, the show reveals this charismatic Victorian designer’s expertise, promotion of traditional Indian arts and crafts, and lasting impact on his son Rudyard, author of The Jungle Book.
