Exhibition on tour: 
Rugby Art Gallery and Museum, Rugby 18 September to 27 October 2018 

If you missed Kurt Tong's exhibition The Queen, The Chairman and I at Impressions, see the exhibition on tour at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum.

The Queen, The Chairman and I is a fascinating journey into the entwined histories of China and the UK, traced through the family history of photographer Kurt Tong. 

Described by Tong as a photographic ‘who do you think you are’, The Queen, The Chairman and I was made over four years across three continents. In this multi-stranded saga of love, hope, and tragedy, Tong uncovers family secrets and reveals the impact of political and economic forces on individual people. Drawing on Tong’s Chinese, Hong Kong and British connections, the exhibition combines large-scale photographs, heirloom photographs, rare colour film footage from the 1940s and a contemporary Chinese teahouse installation.

Guided tours run every Saturday at 11am.
Tea Ceremonies
will be performed every Friday at 12pm, 12.45pm and1.30pm.
