Nalini Malani & Subodh Gupta in London

Posted in Arario Gallery by arariogallery on December 20, 2008

Nalini Malani, "Tales of Good and Evil" (detail), 2008. Ink on Hahnemeuhle Bamboo paper, Each part: 67 × 67 cm, Overall dimensions: 201 × 134 cm.


Works by Arario artists Nalini Malani and Subodh Gupta are included in the exhibition Indian Highway, on view at Serpentine Gallery in London through February 22, 2009.

This major exhibition and program of events spans art, architecture, film, literature, performance and dance, giving a snapshot of artists working in India today. Some of the artworks in the exhibition have been selected for their connection to the theme of Indian Highway, reflecting the importance of the road in migration and movement and as the link between rural and urban communities. Other works make reference to technology and the “information superhighway,” which has been central to India’s economic boom. Artists who have already made an impact on the international art world are featured alongside lesser-known practitioners; to frame and contextualize works by a younger generation of artists, new paintings will be created specially for the Serpentine Gallery and presented as a structure around the exterior of the building.  

The exhibition is curated by Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist of Serpentine Gallery, and Gunnar B. Kvaran, director of Astrup Fearnley Museum (in association with Rebecca Morrill; Leila Hasham; and a group of consultants). As the exhibition tours internationally to different institutions for the next four years, it will continually grow and develop.
