Art manifestations

Art manifestations
The exhibition is titled, We are Ours: A Collection of Manifestos for The Instant. Curated by Himali Singh Soni, the significance of ‘27’ manifestos is manifold – man is the Latin root of hand, which is comprised of 27 bones; 27 is the number of letters in the Latin lexicon; 27 is also a perfect cube representing the earthly cosmic Pythagoras and Plato alike.

The purpose of commissioning aesthetic manifestos was to create a constellation of manifestations of the ideas that lie between the artist and the history of art, its institutions and its socio-cultural origins and to place them in a space where the image of what they have to say exceeds the meaning of what it says.

The list of artists includes a selection of artists whose practices are founded in their conceptual and philosophical engagement with the ways we live within forms. Participating artists are Aakash Nihalani, Abhishek Hazra, Aditya Pande, Aradhana Seth, Bharti Kher, Chittrovanu Mazumdar, Hema Upadhyay, Hetain Patel, Jitish Kallat, Kiran Subbaiah, Mithu Sen, Neha Choksi, Nikhil Chopra, Pors and Rao, Prajakta Potnis, Praneet Soi, Prayas Abhinav, Ranbir Kaleka, Rajorshi Ghosh, Raqs Media Collective, Sahej Rahal, Shilpa Gupta, Shreyas Karle, Surabhi Saraf, Vishal Dar, Yamini Nayar and Zuleikha Chaudhari.
