Exhibition Dates: 9 January – 10 February ‘20
For the upcoming edition of Mumbai Gallery Weekend ’20, Art Musings presents Transients, a photography exhibition showcasing works by contemporary Indian photographer Sheetal Mallar, curated by Ranjit Hoskote. In her work, she has focused on the delicate, unspoken relationships that bind people to places, and on the layers of active and latent signals by which individuals signal their identity and aspirations. She has developed an extended portraiture of various urban subcultures and professional groups, exploring the tension between the individual personality and the collective context. Several of her ongoing projects engage with the culture, topography and narratives of popular Indian cinema.
Mallar’s photographic work has appeared in Architectural Digest, Verve, Motherland and Invisible Photographer Asia, among other publications and platforms. It has been exhibited in Goa Photo and the Terra di Cinema Festival, Sicily. Transients is Mallar’s first solo exhibition. Cultural theorist and curator Ranjit Hoskote writes, in the catalogue essay accompanying this exhibition: “Sheetal Mallar finds her subjects in varied locales, each suggestive of the seesaw between buoyant dream and gritty actuality, a glittering past and a bleak future. Mallar’s constant theme is transience.”
