PICTURE THIS: CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY AND INDIA | DECEMBER 6 - APRIL 3 2016
Picture This features the work of four contemporary photographers for whom India is an important subject or setting: Gauri Gill, Sunil Cupta, Max Pinckers, and Pamela Singh. Diverse in nationality and place of residence, each of these artists brings a cosmopolitan perspective to his or her work. Whether photographing in rural Rajasthan or major cities like Mumbai or New York, they offer points of view that do not fit easily into categories of "insider" or "outsider."
Like many contemporary photographers, the artists in this exhibition make imaginative use of the camera's power to document reality. Their pictures pose questions about identity, self-representation, history, and truth; examine the social impact of photographic images; and envision experiences such as desire, love, and dislocation. In doing so, these photographers connect their personal relationship with India to themes and strategies central to contemporary artists across the globe.
