5782569Homelands: Documenting Centuries Of Cham Migration
DateFriday 1st February 2019 to Monday 16th September 2019
DescriptionThe Cham are an ethnic minority group from Southeast Asia. Historically, Cham territory included several kingdoms in what is today central and southern Vietnam, but as a result of repeated defeats and persecution the Cham were dispersed throughout the region. Cham communities can now be found on Hainan island in the South China Sea, Vietnam, Cambodia Thailand and Malaysia, as well as further afield in the US, Canada, France and Australia. In 2016, photographer James Sebright travelled around the South China Sea region, meeting Cham communities in China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia. This exhibition reveals the outcomes of his work documenting the lives and livelihoods of the Cham diaspora.
