Guidelines for Exhibitors of Photographs at the Royal Anthropological Institute  

The RAI welcomes occasional photographic exhibitions in its meeting room on the first floor at 50 Fitzroy Street.

The room is well lit, and with the frames available (suitable for images up to 50 x 40 cm), can accommodate up to 35 images, with frames hung above one another. Exhibitors wishing to use larger frames will need to supply them themselves.

Exhibitors will need to demonstrate a coherent and purposeful narrative for their work, which should relate clearly to the discipline of anthropology. They should supply a letter of endorsement from a supervisor or other suitable source.

All proposals will be considered by the RAI Photo Committee, and their decisions are final.

The costs of printing must be borne by exhibitors.

Please note that visitors to exhibitions will need to make an appointment since the room is sometimes in use. There is no disabled access.

For any further information please contact the Photo Curator archives@therai.org.uk

Imagi/Nations: Native North American Photographs from the Royal Anthropological Institute

Curated by Max Carocci

Images of Native North Americans part of a little known collections such as the ones of the RAI, offer a rare glimpse into the visual history of indigenous North American nations (Canadian First Nations, Native Americans, Inuit).

The exhibition presents a selection of 35 photographs from the RAI's photographic archives that cover areas as different as early physical anthropology, visual records of material culture, as well as social and cultural life of Native North Americans between the 19th c. and the early decades of the 20th c. Collections include images of peoples from Greenland and the Pacific Northwest coast, the Southwest USA, Canadian Great Lakes, the Great Plains and the Eastern woodlands.

You can see the exhibition online here and download a copy of the exhibition catalogue.

Copies of all of the prints in this exhibition are available for purchase.  Contact the photo curator.
