Rendezvous with the Artist: Shilpa Gupta
Asia Society India Centre announces the new Rendezvous with the Artist series of events. These events feature organized visits to the studios and production sites of internationally-recognized artists who are active in Mumbai. Participants enjoy the opportunity to hear firsthand about artists' work, to learn directly about their inspirations, their artistic processes and their current projects, and see the inner sanctum where the work is made.
The series is generously sponsored by Christie’s, the world’s leading auction house.
Executive Director Bunty Chand notes, "We want to provide access to the kind of experience and discussion that are usually off-limits to all but the closest associates and friends of an artist. In these contexts, in the comfort and control of their own working environments, we believe artists will speak with a degree of candor and immediacy that is unusual and refreshing for art enthusiasts." This ticketed series will take place on a quarterly basis, with artists and dates to be announced.
The first rendezvous will be with the eminent artist Shilpa Gupta, whose sculptures, photographs and installations have been exhibited across several continents, at institutions including the Tate Modern, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Mori Museum, Tokyo; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Her solo exhibitions have been organized by art institutions including the Contemporary Art Center, Cincinnati, U.S.; OK Center for Contemporary Art, Linz, Austria; and Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol, UK; as well as gallery shows with Galerie Yvon Lambert, Paris; and Galleria Continua, San Gimignano, Italy. Shilpa Gupta is represented by Gallery Chemould, Mumbai and Yvon Lambert, Paris.
