Mr. Fritz,
Mr. Kiboro,
Ladies and Gentlemen:

My thanks to you, Mr. Kiboro, for your kind words and to the International Press Institute for your warm welcome.

Twenty-four years ago I had the honour of addressing this organisation at its 30th annual conference, also held here in Nairobi. Twenty-one years before that, in 1960, I established the Nation newspapers here.

I offer my comments this morning from the perspective of someone who has been a long-standing observer of cultural evolution in the developing world of Africa and Asia, and from more than twenty-years of experience with activities such as the Aga Khan Award for Architecture that have attempted to make a positive contribution to that process.

100 art pieces—many from jewelry houses—go on exhibit in April

Some people simply have amazing taste. Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, who served as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees from 1966 to 1977, was one of those people.

So much so that the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York City will host an exhibition showcasing 100 examples from his vast collection—and that of his wife, Catherine—of artworks, objects, and jewelry.
