"A Journey to Tajikistan" Exhibition Opening Reception

The Lord Rootes Memorial Fund proudly presents the exhibition "A Journey to Tajikistan", in Millburn House from Monday 19 October to Friday 30 October (Weeks 3 & 4). This mixed media exhibition follows a summer's worth of travel and research across central Asia by a recent Warwick graduate and boasts a large collection of original photography and other media.

Using photography as a basis, the exhibition studies modern Tajikistan from a cultural perspective, exploring its growing identity and constructing narratives of daily life. Tajikistan has officially been a country for 20 years since the break up of the Soviet Union, and is still finding its feet both economically and domestically.

There will be a special reception on Tuesday 20 October to open the exhibition, from 7pm to 9pm in the Millburn House Foyer. Please come along, everybody is welcome and can look forward to authentic Tajik food, film and music. The exhibition is open to anyone who would like to attend, including external visitors to the University.
