The Self and the Other Portraiture in Contemporary Indian Photography

The Self and the Other Portraiture in Contemporary Indian Photography

October 24, 2009 until February 7, 2010 // (North Gallery) ARTIUM, Basque Centre-Museum of Contemporary Art // Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain

The Self and the Other is an exploration of the photographic gaze that engages with personal and cultural identity. While personal identity can be viewed through different constructs of the Self, one cannot overlook the representation of the Other to understand the cultural identity of a people. Portraiture in Contemporary Indian Photography refers to the prism through which we will view the shifts, dichotomies and disturbances across the complex social fabric of life in India. The Self and the Otheroffers an intimate view of contemporary life in India through the lens of its most well known photographers and artists.

Produced by ARTIUM (Vitoria-Gasteiz) and Palau de la Virreina (Barcelona).
