With the exhibition beginning on 15 January, this will be  the first time that Tate Modern will make its presence felt in India.

The show is earmarked as a collateral event of India Art Fair 2014 which has been jointly curated by Khoj’s resident curator Andi-Asmita Rangari and Tate’s Loren Hansi Momudu.

Commenting on the exhibition, Director of Khoj Pooja Sood said, ‘We were invited by Tate in 2011 to be part of this collaboration. Different works from the exhibition engage with digital art forms such as sound and the moving image, an area that Khoj has been exploring for some time. This collaboration also points towards an interest shared by both Tate and Khoj in social  issues of migration, political expression and its articulation through voice and silence.’  Tate Modern’s curator Loren Hansi Momudu, said, ‘Word. Sound. Power. was devised to draw a relationship between speech and power and the fact that access to different languages gives access to different power processes. Hence, from a single utterance, to the pronunciation of a name and the declaration of an idea, the voice is a tool through which we assert our presence in the world.’ By bringing together a range of artists working across different creative disciplines,  this exhibition takes a moment to listen to the harmony, and dissonance, of voices rising.

Some of the artistes whose works will be on display include Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Caroline Bergvall, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen and five Indian artists including Amar Kanwar and Mithu Sen.

When: From 15 January till 8 February, 11 am to 7 pm
