Maximilano Modesti and Hervé Perdriolle are bringing emerging Indian artists to Brussels

Source Architectural Digest by Ritupriya Basu
Some projects take a while to come together. They call for quiet deliberation and impassioned conversations till they’re ready to take shape, and they’re all the better for it. For AD contributing editor Maximiliano Modesti and art critic and curator Hervé Perdriolle, it was much the same. They first met in 2012 at the India Art Fair in New Delhi, and soon discovered their shared passion for emerging Indian artists. When they both left for Brussels, a few years apart, the idea of opening a gallery started to brew.

MAP's latest show traces the trajectory of Indian photography

Source Mint Lounge by Avantika Bhuyan
It has been a rather busy December for the Museum of Art and Photography (MAP), Bengaluru. Earlier this month, it hosted Art Is Life: SoundFrames, in collaboration with the US’ Berklee College of Music, to celebrate music and its power to bring people together. And now an exhibition of photographs from its collection is being showcased at the Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) in Melbourne, Australia, as part of Visions Of India: From The Colonial To The Contemporary. Curated by Nathaniel Gaskell, writer and director of the MAP Academy, it is the first major survey of Indian photography in Australia.

At the Asia Pacific Triennial, Universal Concerns Are Personal

Source Ocula by Pamela See
Since the early 1990s, the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) has reshaped the way that art from the region is presented. APT's inception signalled a departure from the Bjelke-Petersen era in Queensland, which was defined by conservatism, cronyism, and corruption. The demise of premier Sir Johannes Bjelke-Petersen coincided with reforms to Australian foreign policy under Foreign Minister Gareth Evans, who in 1989 called for a 'cultural relations' approach to regional security. Produced by a committee of curators and partner organisations throughout the Asia Pacific since its inception, APT is distinct from other recurrent international exhibition series as it operates without an overarching theme. This year's tenth edition (4 December 2021–25 April 2022) is no different. With a curatorial team of 15 headed by Tarun Nagesh and Reuben Keehan, 69 projects by 150 artists presented across the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art interrogate traditions and technologies, both old and new, while countering a Covid-related increase in digital reliance with an emphasis on tactility.

‘Chitra Ganesh: Dreaming in Multiverse’

Source Washington University in St.Louis
The Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis will present the first solo exhibition in the Midwest by Brooklyn, N.Y.-based artist Chitra Ganesh. In her multidisciplinary practice, Ganesh draws on Buddhist and Hindu iconography, science fiction, queer theory, comics, Surrealism, Bollywood posters and video games, combining them with her own imagery to present speculative visions of society in the past, present and future. “Chitra Ganesh: Dreaming in Multiverse” reflects the artist’s commitment to making worlds that are tethered to culture and history, yet unbound from the limitations of contemporary reality. At the Kemper Art Museum, Ganesh will exhibit 13 digital prints that together comprise the artist’s “Multiverse Dreaming” suite, as well as a selection of her video animations. The exhibition will be on view Feb. 18 through July 25, 2022.

Traditional art forms are fighting back in the Asia Pacific region

Source The Art Newspaper by
The 10th Asia Pacific Triennial in Brisbane explores connections between people and place—and the encroaching danger of climate change. Among the 150 artists and collectives participating in APT10 are brothers Mayur and Tushar Vayeda, who were born and still live in the village of Ganjad, 80 miles from Mumbai in India. They make art in the style of their Warli tribe-—a kind of pictorial language featuring geometric human figures against a background of lush, stylised vegetation and natural formations. The brothers paint traditional fables, as well as stories they gathered by recording local oral histories, using water-based paints on a ground made of the dung of their own cattle. One of their works, Dhartari: The creation of the world 2021, has been acquired by QAGOMA.
