Exhibition | Asymmetrical Objects

March 13 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

Curated by Tasneem Zakaria Mehta
co-curated by Himanshu Kadam

In January 2018, the Museum completed 10 years since it opened to public after a 5-year restoration in 2008. We have also completed 160 years since it first opened to the public in its original location at the Town Barracks in 1857!

The title ‘Asymmetrical Objects’ refers to the founding principles of the Museum – Nature & Science – which are as prevalent now as it were in the 19th century. We have juxtaposed this idea with our ongoing engagement with the prevailing ‘environment’ through a series of contemporary art exhibitions.

The Museum has invited 10 of our foremost artists whose practice includes an interest in nature & science, in consumption & degradation as process & product. The exhibition showcases artworks that address these issues.

Each artist has explored a different theme such as alienation,
pollution, destruction of biodiversity, unnatural divisions, mutations and distortions, the politics of water and waste and the destruction of landscapes and rivers.

Artists showcased: Atul Bhalla, Jitish Kallat, Manish Nai, Mithu Sen, Prajakta Potnis, Ranbir Kaleka, Reena Kallat, Rohini Devasher, Sahej Rahal, Shilpa Gupta

The exhibition is on view at the Museum till 27 March 2018. Museum entry ticket applicable. No extra charges to view the exhibition.
