Close to the Skin is a display and short film by our previous V&A Jameel Resident Noor Ali Chagani. It will be on display in Gallery 47 c for one week only (until 1 March) so do come by and see the work Chagani produced during his residency.

Chagani will also be speaking at our conference The Many Careers of John Lockwood Kipling this Saturday. We will trace Lockwood’s contributions, as an artist, writer, museum director, and founder of the National College of Arts, Lahore, where Chagani attended as an art student.

We have also published the short film about Noor’s residency on the V&A’s YouTube channel and Residency Playlist:
