Group show curated by Myna Mukherjee and Davide Quadrio
Part of Hub India – Classical Radical, a three-part museum show that features contemporary and modern art from the Indian subcontinent, exploring legacy and antiquity in the sociological here and now.
Multitudes & Assemblages includes multiple narratives that simultaneously unfold in the exhibition. These artistic narratives are like haptic elements, an incongruous body of evidence of a connective focal point, curated towards a community of possibilities. Evoking more nostalgia than history, these voices rise, sometimes in unison, sometimes in tension with each other, at opposite sides of time, like a mirror, reversing the gaze upon a new familiar but radical pastiche of liberation, ecology, urbanization, migration, feminism, gender, subjectivity and sensation. The exhibition also includes Sama: Symbols and gestures in contemporary art practices. Italy and India vol. 1., a film installation that explores the exciting world of contemporary art in both the Indian subcontinent and in Italy.
