MELTING POT @ GALLERY BEYOND
Head down to the Gallery Beyond art gallery at Fort, and take a look at the exhibition that marks similarities and differences in their perspectives, while highlighting the hybrid nature of their practices. The imagery is visibly transnational, tracing lineages, exploring roots, and morphing disparate histories through visual narrative. References to stereotypes, and significant engagement with the self and the other in varied environments, feature as central motifs, as do nuanced allusions to India as a nation. The compilation of work symbolically carries forward the theme; individually, and jointly, the five artist’s paintings represent notions of absorbing, adopting and alternately cultural influences that have framed their respective life experiences.
