Vivan Sundaram: Disjunctures at Haus der Kunst, Munich

June 29 - July 10, 2018

"The presentation at Haus der Kunst is the most comprehensive and wideranging survey of Sundaram’s work at a European institution. The display is conceived as a sequence of juxtapositions with a view to suggesting how formal and thematic concerns ricochet from one work to another. History, Memory, Archive: the three keywords that the artist has designated as the overarching concerns of his practice are the signposts, as it were, for articulating the overall structure of the exhibition, an open-ended framework for exploring the connections or disjunctures between these terms and themes." - Curator Deepak Ananth, Assistant Curator Anna Schneider

Nandita Raman at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York

February 15 - March 10, 2018 

 

Nandita Raman's work is exhibited at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York's Body is A Situation.

In her first New York City solo exhibition, Raman looks at the most available body, her own, in an effort to locate herself in the here and now; and opens it up to performativity of gender. In so looking, she embodies Simone de Beauvoir’s sentiment: “The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project”. 

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 15 | 6-8 pm

Vivan Sundaram's Retrospective at Kiran Nadar Museum of Art

February 9 - June 30, 2018
 

Vivan Sundaram's first ever retrospective surveying his practice over five decades is on view at the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, New Delhi, India. 

Preparing for his Retrospective exhibition, Vivan Sundaram says: “This exhibition presents the themes I have engaged with, but it also proposes structures that hold things together in retrospect: via the work, the exhibition layout, and spectator itineraries. ‘Step inside and you are no longer a stranger’: the exhibition’s title reflects the conflicting dimensions of my practice.”
